Mother "B 

Bancroft Hall, the home for the Brigade of 
Midshipmen. It is the largest co-ed dormitory in the world 
containing over one thousand rooms and over four miles 
of hallways. In addition, Mother "B" contains all the 
needed facilities including a dining room to feed over four 
thousand people at one seating, stores and shops for 
personal needs, recreation rooms, and chapels for various 

religions. Bancroft Hall is always filled with activity-plebes 
"chopping" and sounding off, mids visiting other mids, 
midshipmen going to and returning from classes; except 
for the mandatory three hour study period five days a 
week when all midshipmen concentrate on their studies. 
Mother "B" is a home away from home for over 4,500

"The Goat Is Old And Gnarly" 

The goat is old and gnarly 

and he's never been to school, 
But he can take the bacon 

From the worn out Army mule; 
He's had no education 

But He's brimmin' full o' fight; 
And Bill will feed on 

Army mule tonight! 

Army, Army, call the doctor. 
Army, Army, call the doctor. 
Army, Army, call the doctor. 
You're all in, down, and . . . 

whoa! Any oats today, lady? 
No!?! Brace Up! 
Army, Army, Call the doctor. 

You're all in, down and out! 

Go Navy - Beat Army 


jf' ".'jr 

Tecumseh, the legendary god of 2.0, is by far the most famous 
statue at USNA and the god after whom T-court was named. During 
finals, midshipmen bombard Tecumseh with pennies to insure at 
least a passing grade on the ensuing test. Tecumseh is painted 
every year on the following occasions; Induction Day, Plebe Parents 
Weekend, Army week, home football games, and for the final 
thirty-six days prior to graduation. 


Opening 13 


The Brigade has three formations every day 
with the exception of Sunday when only two are 
held. Noon and evening formations are held 
outside whenever it is not raining and the 
temperature is above 56° F, while morning 
quarters formation is always inside at 0730. Two 
battalions form in Tecumseh Court while the other 
four battalions form on the other terraces 
surrounding Bancraft Hall. Outside formations last 
approximately fifteen minutes and conclude with 
the Brigade marching into Bancroft Hall to the 
music of the Drum and Bugle Corps.

The Yard 

The Yard. A Home. School- 
grounds. A Prison. A Federal 
Preserve. A State Park. A 
Historic Landmark. One of 
the nation's largest tourist 
attractions. The Yard is all 
these things and more. It 
houses the world's largest 
dormatory, the largest dining 
hall, one of the nation's best 
institutions of higher learn- 
ing, sports fields, and much 
more. It is the place most 
midshipmen spend four years 
trying to escape and the rest 
of their lifes trying to return.

Fall Parades 

Formal dress parades are held on Wednesday 
afternoons during the fall for a few reasons. The 
first reason is to honor the guest reviewer. A 
second reason is to provide the public with a 
chance to see the Brigade of Midshipman as a 
whole, not just individuals. And the ubiquitous 
reason, the parades give the midsipmen a chance 
to compete as companies for color points.

Halloween at USMA affords midshipmen the opportun- 
ity to display their creativity and imagination as well as 
the chance to go trick-or-treating from door to door. Mot 
Just any doors; plebe doors. Trying to satisfy the sweet 

teeth of the upperclass can be expensive, but the plebes 
will have three years to collect on their initial investments. 
The annual costume contest is extremely competitive as 
is the pumpkin carving contest.

rorrestal Lectures 






Forrestal lectures are a series of talks delivered by 
prominent individuals to the Brigade after the evening 
meal two or three times each semester. The lectures are 
not restricted to any particular subject, but they usually 
pertain to the military or a worid or national event. 

The Forrestal lecture series began in 1970 in honor 
of James V. Forrestal who served as Secretary of the navy. 

and the first Secretary of Defense under President Truman 
in 1947. 

The purpose of Forrestal lectures is to expose 
midshipmen to a wide variety of viewpoints from 
individuals who are prominent in government, politics, 
sports, entertainment, journalism, and the arts. 



The random ringing of the fire bells 
at 2230 on the Thursday night prior to 
a home football game marks the 
beginning of a USriA pep rally. For some 
mids the bells were merely a distraction 
while studying, but for many others they 
signalled the chance to dress brashly, 
throw rolls of toilet paper, and yell for 
Pfavy's football team. The pep rallies 
were led by the cheerieaders, the pep 
band, and, for the first time, Mr. T. The 
Commandant usually spoke, and he 
provided inspiration to the Brigade and 
to the football team to strive for victory. 
The Washington Redskinettes were wel- 
comed guests at one pep rally, and they 
too provided a great deal of inspiration. 




Army-Mavy ... In California 

This year for the first, and possibly the 
last, time the ARMY-NAVY Football Game 
was fought in the Rose Bowl. It was the 
biggest event of the year and required a lot 
of coordination. The entire student body of 
both schools had to be transported across 
the country, it was the largest airlift of 
people since World War II. Housing had to 
be found for over 9,000 people, and only 
half could be housed in hotels. The other 
4,500 mids and cadets were accepted into 
the homes of Los Angeles area residents. 
Everyone enjoyed themselves, sponsors 
and guests. Other events in California 
included tours of movie studios, a night at 
Disneyland, trips to Tijuana, and of course 
there was USC. 

Oh, we won the football game.

Christmas Dinner 

The annual Christmas dinner is an event that will 
long be remembered by most midshipmen because it 
provides the opportunity to relax briefly before 
impending finals, to enjoy a delicious meal with friends 
who have become as close as family, and to 
contemplate the upcoming holiday season. For the 
plebes the Christmas dinner is unique because it is their 
first opportunity to light-up a cigar and see the combined 
efforts of 4,500 other cigars in the Wardroon. 


2 For 7 

After two years at the Academy, the 
Cla89 of 1985 enter their second class year. 
For those that depart before the first day 
of academics, they return to being civihans 
and strive for other goals. For those who 
decide to stay, they will strive to complete 
their last two years and eventually serve 
their obligated five years in the Navy. For 
these midshipmen a special "2 For 7 Night" 
party is given in Dahlgren Hall. Food and 
beverage is served and music is provided. 
The Class of '85 enjoy a night affair to 
celebrate their decision to enter the military

Service Selection 

Service selection night is a night long awaited 
for by all firsties because the decision of which 
career path to follow becomes final. For some the 
decision is easy and service selection is merely a 
formality, but for others the decision is agonizing. 
Each firsty knows prior to this night what he is 
physically qualified to pick. For example, aspiring 
pilots must have perfect vision. Future submar- 
iners are not involved in service selection night 
(except for the party) because they have 
previously been selected for that career path. The 
number of billets available in each community 
(Air, Surface, Marines, etc.) is limited, so class 
standing plays a key role in determining the future 
of some firsties. For the class of 1984 service 
selection night proceeded smoothly with all but a 
few firsties picking the career path that they had 
hoped for.

Hundreds night is held on the 
eve of the one hundredth night 
before graduation. For about 90 
minutes the roles of the firsties 
and the plebes are reversed, 
providing the plebes the golden 
opportunity to "flame" on the 
firsties who have been training 
them for nine months. Al- 
though the activities of 
hundreds night vary from com- 
pany to company the purpose is 
the same; to have fun and to 
allow that meek, subdued plebe 
to don the rank of a firsty and 
become a screaming idiot. For 
the firsties who must swallow 
their pride briefly there is 
always the comfort of knowing 
how fast 90 minutes can pass.

ing Week '84, the Class of 1987 climbed 
Herndon monument. The act of replac- 
ing the dixie cup with a midshipman 
cover signaled the end of plebe-dom for 
this class. 

The major event of Commission- 
ing Week for the Class of 1985 was 
the Ring Dance. This is the ceremony 
through which the soon-to-be first 
class gain the privelege of wearing 
their class rings. The heart of the

Larry W. Beese 


South Amherst, OH 

EEE Nuclear Power 

Pops cruised into Canoe U. from that 
wonderouB beArtJaad of America, Cleveland, 
Ohio. Larry was an old salt before cowing here 
having served three years aboard the USS 
Enterprise. Larry had a good old time plebe 
year running around trying to see how many 
upperclass he could in timida te. Ma ving 
enjoyed that so much he decided to try the 
same thing on officers. Larry's run-ins with 
various and sundry officers created a lot of 
laughs as well as heartburn. 

Larry was the adventurous type deciding 
to major in EE. Because of it he soon became 
a major in all-nighters as well. There wasn't 
a day or night gone by that you couldn't find 
hirn in the wardroom with a book in band or 
m the rack recovering. As it turned out, all the 
short hours of study and long hours of rack 
paid off as Larry now carries this experience 
into the nuclear navy. 

Along with that Larry also brings with 
him a fiery commitment to the Lord and a 
strong sense of principle. May Larry always 
succeed in everything he does for His glory. 
We wish him the best. 

Craig R. Bertolett Jr. 


St. Louis, Mo. 

EAS Navy Air 

Bert came to USNA via the NAPS route. 
He must have been there to get the partying 
out of his system because he sure didn't need 
the academics. After breezing through NAPS, 
fiUing his belly, and his bank account he came 
to good old USNA. Plebe year was no problem 
at all for Bert He joined the sailing team to 
maintain his top physical shape and to avoid 
the upperclass. The only books Bert opened 
that year or youngster year had centerfolds. 
They aroused him but not intellectually. For 
youngster cruise Bert chose a yawl in order to 
catch the rays and maintain his already 
impressive physique. Tobogganing with Dr. D 
and the boys convinced both Bert and myself 
that winter sports are too dangerous. Second 
class summer was another breeze for Bert. He 
proved that man can exist on beer and chili 
alone. Second class year marked a new era in 
Bert's life. He was forced to open his first book 
and study. To go along with his new found 
books. Bert found his way to Dahlgren and 
Hood College. Hood, however, changed Bett's 
life. He changed from a party animal and 
womanizer to faithful Bert the future 
husband. Yes, much to the displeasure of 
thousands of waiting women, Bert met his 
present steady, Sue. Hood College became his 
official weekend address. First class summer 
proved to be another good time for Bert. He 
found himself in Germany for a month to 
study European partying at the school's 
expense. First class year has been even better 
than the first three for Bert. With Sue now 
living in Annapolis. Bert was forced to change 
his weekend address once again. Pensacola is 
next on Bert's list and we wish him the best 
of luck. Stay the same and keep in touch.

Tbe Coast Guard Academy was honored by

Patrick E. Buckley 


Vienna, Virginia 

Operations Analysis, Na\y Pilot 

Buck comes from a Navy family, and it was 
only natural that he should wind up at USNA 
being a third generation member of this 
glorious institution. Buck laughed bis way 
through Plebe Summer and was always able 
to crack up the firsties with bis irrepressible 
grin. Academics were not part of Buck's 
vocabulary plebe year, or any year in fact. He 
soon found friends in Quatts. Vinnie. and 
Murph, and from then on bis antics were 
covered up by his first class mentors. Buck 
never ceased to amaze the boys on the 
weekends when a car full of girls would come 
by and whisk him away for the night. He loved 
his liberty, and rarely returned on time for 
taps, usually because he found the wall and 
a few too many beers in his way. Youngster 
vear saw Buck living with Louie and Chris: a 
room destined for destruction. Capt. and Mrs. 
B. always made tailgaters interesting for the 
bovs providing them with much food and 
many good times. Buck gave up the weekend 
hunting ritual with the boys deciding instead 
to rejuvenate himself in Jean's arms. It's OK, 
Buck, she's old enough now. The Army 
excursions to Philly in the wagon are 
unforgettable to us all. Buck also took /ij.s 
madness to the Rugby field where he excelled 
both during the game and afterwards at the 
parties: can you say "boat party '"^ Buck 
started the Boys' Porsche Club, eventually 
dragging Suki and Bonkers in with him. Buck 
owes money to every bank on the East Coast, 
but he plans on making a million as a P-3 
pilot. Fly high, buddy!!! Pat, Chris, Louie. 
Separately they came, together they were, 
forever they will be. 


Kevin T. Burke 


Marlboro, Massachusetts 

Physics, Nuclear subs 

Kevin came to the Academy from the small 
town of Marlboro with the eipectation of 
changing from boy to man. That be did. Not 
only did he lose hia shyness, but he also lost 
several other of his Ufelong attributes (punker, 
barge, and insulin). Aside from sex, be 
managed to devote his time to other hobbies 
such as scuba, painting, and weight Ufting. 

Freshman year proved to be a year of 
fruBtration; Jumpin Joe could vouch for that 
Ab a youngster, Kevin showed his streak of 
ambition by switching his major from 
oceanography to physics (later becoming the 
resident physic's expert). Youngster year was 
a mixture of fun. and wore fun - crutches up 
Blake's — , rubber bands in Norv's mouth. 
Vicks birthday party, and living with his 
buddies B.R., N.L., and M.M. Second class 
year was a dark period in Kevin 's life which 
deserves no mention. Finally, during First 
class year, Kev showed bis true colors. A new 
man because of hia engagement to Lynne. he 
strived to become the best. He proved that 
work and play go hand in hand by 
representing 84 a& class secretary as well as 
attaining hia four year goal of becoming Fun 
One Company Commander. 

For a while Kev was caught in the glamour 
of the Marine Corps, but be finally came to 
his aenaes. For all the nukes, we can be glad 
that we have not lost him yet . . . there's still 
Nuke school and the fleet Good luck Kev.

Republic, West Virginia 

Applied Science, Marine Air 

John came to USNA from the tall pines of 
Washington, er. the state that is. via NAPS 
where he earned himself a free i-load) ride to 
USNA for football and fieidball John s plebe 
year passed relatively uneventfully, passing 
the hours away not studying and recording 
fricatives on his "stored" tape recorder. John's 
next two vears were highly goal-oriented 
during which he painstakingly searched for 
wavs not to studv. and how to beat anyone and 
everyone at anything. John's youngster year 
brought him a new set of roomies and even 
more varied study hour activities. As the year 
progressed John became intimately familiar 
with the admin-conduct system, as a small 
demolitions operation blew up in bis face and 
be learned old Seals never get out of shape. 
And so the restriction began 

Second class year, the restriction continued 
and John realized he had bad enough. An 
attitude change was in order John redirected 
bis efforts ever so slightly to being more 
professional, ie. not getting caught as much. 
John found the work load about as difficult 
with second class lacademics as he did the 
previous vears, a firm believer in the old motto 
"2.0 and go". First class year arrived and John 
found himself in a position of shall we say 
"responsibility" His weekends were occupied 
with visits to all the girls who found him cute 
— nose, ears and all — right. Hank"^ John 
opted to fly with heads de Jar when the Nukes 
laughed at him and he found out the Naiy 
doesn't fly F-I8's. It's been great knowing 
John and we all know hell be having fun

was on Red Beach working on the essential 
tan. or on the phone with bis high school 
sweetheart. Sharon. 

Junior vear found Lance rooming with his 
sidekick. Buffy They didn 't see one another 
much that year, for Lance was gone aJot. How 
often? Let's just say that he became the only 
Junior to take more weekends than the 
Seniors. He was just checking up on Sharon 
who was now enrolled at American U- Later. 
Sharon moved to Annapolis and we saw even 
less of Lance than before. Nevertheless. Lance 
was active within the Brigade as Alpha Co- 
Cdr. over the summer, and as Batt Cdr. during 
the fall of his senior year. Lance then 
discovered that the marginal benefits of Air 
were not as great as those of Nuke Power, and 
thus he surprised us all by going Subs. 

We would all like to wish Lance and Sharon 
the best of luck in Orlando and wherever the 
Navv will take them from there.

Silver Spring, Maryland

Clem came to USNA from his faraway 
homeland of Silver Spring. Maryland where he 
had succeeded in graduating from the 
quasi-military institution of St. John's High 

Clem began plebe summer as an undercover 
plebe and practically remained out of sight 
except for a few racial slurs, until youngster 
vear when Clem decided to shock everyone by 
volunteering his 68-inch, 140-pound frame to 
be abused by the hea\y weight football team. 
To everyone's surprise. Clem turned out to be 
a regular Charlie Brown I Washington Redskin 
tvpel by always being open but seldom being 
touched- Needless to say. Clem was a favorite 
on the first company squads from then until 

Academically. Clem could compete with the 
best of sweats in any academic subject. He 
could be traced anywhere in Mother 'B' by 
following the trail of water being shed from 
bis brow. First class year saw a different Clem 
when he discovered that service selection was 
upon him and the coast button was easily 
within reach- 
Clem leaves USNA for the 'mighty fine 
surface line' where he hopes to continue as a 
management major- Clem, a dedicated man in

Yes his QPR first semester. Youngster 
summer was full of professionalism for Adm. 
Andy. He was a counselor for 45 screaming 1 7

of the greyhounds of the Severn where he 
contracted mono. We're still trying to figure 
that one out. Alwa\'8 a physical stud he had 
to prove It by dislocating a FRIENDS 
shoulder during a wrestling test. As time 
passed, Drew used his new found major and 
moved on to bigger and better things: VKG

Jim: a mystery inside an enigma wearing a 
pair of docks. Or leather jeans and a flannel 
shirt, incongruous. It ail settles into a pattern. 
Tuesday he'd be full of resolution - to writ^ 
the many escaped friends, to study, to 
workout. OK. fine, but workout meant hitting 
the cemetery with Herb, or study meant his 
eyelids. Wednesday was for Harry's if be 
skipped practice; and drill, which Jim Uked at 
first, though his military ardor later sparked 
jump wings, a scuba mask, and a platoon at 
NAPS. Thursday- Only one more classday. so 
why not wrestle with joeclyde and pb or attend 
an ill fated but exciting concert'' The weekend 
began Friday, in Washington or the steam 
tunnels or Frederick or First Wing. Saturday 
brought tailgates (Boy Scout cooking@Natty 
Bo — 1st Co ambience), juggling wenches 
(look guys. 2 . . . 3 ■ -) Sunday. Jim too tired 
to do anything but waste time. Monday 
crowed hours too early, crept along, slithered 
between the sheets to an early afternoon end 
. . . Jims diligence at study, his widely 
respected sense of duty (though lately 
acquired) won him 2 prize summer vacations 
in Annapolis. And the friendship of most 
everyone worth knowing. He belonged in a

Al wasn't appointed to the Naval Academy, 
he was transferred. When be said "All me 
blooming life" he meant it. He got into plebe 
summer like a pig into stink. The addition of 
academics and his disappointment m the state 
of the Academy combined to demotivate him 
enough to drop thirty-one notches in the 
company ranking in one semester. Recovery 
was a long time in coming, but nothing could 
keep him down too long - his hope is in a world 
to come. After a brief encounter with EE. he 
discovered the General. His 50 '~' roommate 
retention rate made him a perfect man for 
Tango Co commander. Most people thought 
Al was a quiet guy. but some knew better He 
always tried to keep an open ear to listen and 
a shoulder to cry on. A lover of fast cars and 
fast motorcycles, he soon hopes to find the 
world of fast planes. In God's grace he came 
to this place, and in it he goes.

were spent in various gin mills throughout the 
eastern seaboard. As a result of the tragic 
Georgetown experience, Louie entered a

Carlos arrived at the Academy via Dallas, 
Texas, and this place has never been the same! 
Although living with him for these years has 
been an "experience" in itself, he wasn't 
around much because he was always out 
meeting the rest uf the Brigade and ensuring 
that morale was high and encouraging those 
of us who desperately need it. If he didn't 
know at least half the members of Canoe U . 
it would be surprising. He was obviously 
practicing for his career as a ground pounder, 
especially when he started getting E.I. on his 
"OO-RAH" technique. 

Z won't be remembered for being class 
president for 2 years, or his ever encouraging 
words, or his radiant personality; his faith in 
God and the desire to share the peace and joy 
of Jesus Christ is his trademark and was. and 
is. his number one priority. Colossians 1:28-29 
says It best. "And we proclaim Him. 
admonishing every man and teaching every 
man with all wisdom that we may present 
every man complete m Christ. And for this 
purpose also I labor, striving according to his 
power, which mightily works within me. " Los

and respected by ail for his dedication to

himself to spiffy clean the room alone for 
formal.'', matching his stellar personal appear- 
ance. We still think be brassoed his teeth. 

Bv the time Norv figured out real mids don 't 
studv. his life was indelibly changed by those 
wild and crazies KTB. MM and BDR. A good 
time in that room was growing under -desk 
fuzzies and testing Bloke's fury (they're lucky

and the thrills of looking at girls but didn't 
believe in talking to them. Buffy was destined 
to be a megastriper as stars appeared, but 
spitting beer at the CO's wife wasn't career 
enhancing. Gator's were Norv's forte (free

was born in Teheran, moved to England, then 
North Carolina end finally showed up at

hard enough. Wherever he strayed, he always 
came back with a story. He'd wake you up 
most of the time so you could be impressed. 
Stories of countless girls left crushed and 
abused in his wake. He'd just flash that 
naughty grin. 

Mark's career at the Academy has been 
filled with fun and achievement. Plebe year he 
incited riots between his roommates JSK and 
KTB. He got involved in a few of his own-poor 
Krems, he should never have fallen asleep in 
boxing class. Worrying about Brenda and her 
"not yet" letters made the year a tense one. 
Youngster year he buckled dorni and set his 
sights on a sword. His power-lifting and grades 
brought him to the top of the company. But 
never one to be dull, he kept instigating 
attscks - this time directed at BDR - as he 
sat back laughing- Second-Class year was 
another good one. except for the unwanted 
visitor his roommate had. The year ended in 
grand style with an "N", an RX7 and an

Mike hails from Flemington. which is 
located deep in the heart of that Sanitary 
landfill known as New Jersey. After spending 
a vear trimming down bis bloated form at the 
Marine Military Academy, Mike met bis 
ultimate destiny coming to Annapolis as a 
member of the class of 1984. A rugby player 
and a geek from start to finish, except for a 
q uick dis tas teful experience with foo t ball. 
Mike learned (like Steve did) that kool-aid can 
taste different too when he pulled up stakes 
and moved in with a couple of real men. Mike 
met his future spouse at a rugby party and has 
never been the same. Xlike's dedicated 
roommates have spent many hours trying to 
convince a thoroughly "smitten" Mike that 
there are other fish in the ocean, but Mike 
would hear none of it as he spent most of his 
free time oggUng diamond rings and drooling 
on pictures of Sharon. Mike's 280Z has logged 
so manv miles between Annapolis and 
Pennsylvania that he spends most of his time 
sitting around broke. We told you so Mike. 
With graduation in his sights, Mike has 
become a Navy NFO with high hopes for P-3's. 
This decision really upset Hank who thought 
Mike would have made an excellent Marine.

to be all that he could be. From day one. he 
joined the proud at USNA the never 
understood why they were few) and set a 
strong pace for the rest of us. Mike majored 
in sleep, minored in Oceanography and 
managed to do well in both. A prime candidate 
for a fixture in the Midshipman sample room, 
Mikey baa been the "model mid" in everything 
he's done. He took max grief for being in D&B 
plebe year ("Dad-gum guys, I could be 
Commander someday'."), jumped out of 
perfectly good airplanes second class summer 
("Shucks fellas, there's nothing like it!") and 
continued to lead as a company commander 
first class year. He'll be most remembered in 
FUN-ONE for his drilling expertise ("Column 
left-Halt"), his eating habits (peanut butter 
sausage with mayo and catsup on rye. hold the 
pickles), and his concern for others. 

We know Mike will "Touch the face of God" 
in high flight for the Corps, and continue to 
touch the hearts of people as well. As he 
departs Mother "B". Mike leaves an outstand- 
ing example of faith in God's guidance. As 
Psalms 139 says: "Where can I go from thy

If I ascend to heaven . . . 

If I take the wings of the dawn ...

Scott was a normal, partying maniac at 
Kutztown State until, with a little help and 
prodding from his dad. he was accepted at 
Canoe V. Ironically, when he showed up for 
plebe summer he was put in a room with Glen, 
one of the few people older than him. Plebe 
vear was a time of decisions for Scott. He 
decided to stay at USNA and his girlfriend 
decided to leave him. He next turned his 
efforts to converting 65 Kutzstown credits into 
18 USNA credits. Kind of disappointing when 
they told him that he'ld have a good shot at 
a master's degree. 

The rest is only a blur now but we will never 
forget Scott's water battles with the boys, his 
acclaimed collection of designer underwear, 
and his never ending pursuit of the perfect and 
most timely fart. Glen may never forgive 
Norky when he was caught coming in with 
civies on while Scott, also in civies, was on the 
back seat floor. I know I'll be permanently 
scarred after seeing Scott dance in a red, lacy 
teddy in front of two local mid-chasers. But 
luckily. Scott eventually met Michele; the only 
girl wild and crazy enough to keep up with 

First class year gave Scotty plenty of time 
to workout and save money after his "concept 
of dulv" slipped and he got 7 weekends for 
hlowing-off Cap Weinberger. He needed the 
monev to fix his vintage 240Z which spent a 
record breaking 7 weeks in the shop. Now 
Scott 's off to Pearl to drive a ship and I'm sure 
that wherever he is there'll be a party.

Blake came to USNA from the land of 
spreading farms and cattle, where, yes. they 
do have running water. Believing the Na^y 
was more enticing than bailing bay or 
squeezing cold cow teats with freezing fingers. 
Blake sought an appointment to USNA. 
However, bis somewhat small high school, no 
it wasn't just one or even two rooms, hadn't 
prepared bim properly. A brief year at SJC 
geared him academically for USNA. a real 
college. Blake initially was confused with the 
slightly different accents and amazing speed 
with which people conversed, but he was quick 
to adapt- Computers proved to be more his 
speed. They didn't talk all he had to do was 
read, his strong suit. Well, computers were a 
snap and soon everyone came to this wizard 
of the computers for help. Blake was now 
ready to try his sea tegs, the big blue enticed 
him even submarines were not out of the 
picture. A few hatches, bulkheads, and low 
overheads proved to Blake that Naval vessels 
were not at all like a barn. Blake, one always 
quick to realize the sensible thing to do, now 
chose the Corps as his goal. Being from that 
Southwest stock, few plebes failed to learn to 
fear, of avoiding his large frame, his deep 
imposing speech, and his threatening demean- 
or. No one can deny the prudence of avoiding 
Blake's nrath when the glassy -eyed expression 
is seen on his face We wish Blake the best

Scooter made many friends, too . . mostly 

By youngster year Glen had established his 
motto that "older women make easier lovers"- 
Also, he was all but a resident at Franny O's. 
In fact. Scooter enjoyed Annapolis so much 
that be spent all his summers there. Over four 
years Glen has probably had less summer 
leave than he had in a single Christmas break. 

Rome was on crutches and in white works 
for most of bis first three years. In fact the 
quantity of Glen's P.E. tests were a lot like 
his hair; a few leas and be wouldn't have had 

Finally, after four years, a quick move from

As for 'Vin 's professional life, be had always 
been a die bard Marine. At least until Service 
Selection Night The men in green couldn 't get 
Ke\in a backseat, so the Xa\y did. The 
Marines will never know what they missed. 
Kevin's Midshipman life was as diversified as 
the Navy itself He was known to spend much 
of his time with the Marines at Mountain 
Warfare School and sailing the Atlantic 
Ocean. He 's truly a man of all trades. 

Good Luck at P-Cola and in the Fleet! 

Susan Christine Borden 


Pittsfield. Massachusetts 

Computer Science, Surface 


When Susan came from her not so tiny town 
of Pittsfield. she was under the impression 
that VSNA was a "real" college. Ha' Even 
through the horrors of EE and knee surgery, 
she never realized the grim truth- 
Sailing helped Susan maintain her sanity 
At first, she was racing in 420's with her 
roommate - & coming in 2nd - once! Next 
came the Varsity Dinghy Team, and with it 
a skipper with whom she is stilt sailing true. 
Sailors really do have more fun! 

Susan 's other indulgence was the Protestant 
Antiphonal Choir Road trips carried the 
group from NYC south to New Orleans and 
back; it is amazing what that choir can pull 
off as long as it stilt sings well! 

Youngster year dawned brightly with the 
revelation that graduating was more impor- 
tant than a EE degree, so Susan swiftly 
followed suit with other Co. 2 engineering 
defectors. Applied Science, here we come! 

Somewhere along the line. Susan's view of 
a ser\-ice commitment metamorphosed, too, 
for she graduated from Canoe -V junior college 
and reappeared at the 2-for- 7 night the 
following fall! Let's hear it for those of us who 
stuck it out. 

As 2/c, we had a short-lived notion that we 
ought to flame, but Susan had to look at the 
deck so a poor Plebe would not see her laugh 
at come-arounds' What a softy. 

Soft or not. she's pulled it off. sailing, 
singing, and computing her way through. 

Susan can proudly claim to be the only 
woman from '84 with a CompSci degree, but 
that 's not her greatest achievement: Being my 
roommate for a steady 4 years surpasses 
everything. That's fortitude!

Pete began his naval career along the banks 
of the NARRAGANSETT. After he tired of 
Newport he moved to Annapolis and here

"Five and Jive" if you're from the Island- 
Along the way a barroom misunderstanding 
and some time under the knife changed Pete's 
ambitions from surface line to the "Corps". 
Many thousands of hours partying in the 
Annapolis area caused many "how you doin',

J. J spent much of plebe year in obscurity 
having been through it all before at Naps. 
Rates posed little problem for J. J on account 
of the fact that he had had a subscription to 
Proceedings since the second grade J. J. 
became close with a local gal that first year, 
enjoying the fact that a date was always within 

Third class year was for the most part 
typical. Girls came and went until Miss right 
tickled J. J. 's fancy After a short courtship 
the engagement was announced and that's the 
last I've seen of him. (the rest of this is made 

Second class year brought a new room 
arrangement as the second roommate in so 
many years headed for the (holy) bills The 
old pair had done it again, forcing yet another 
innocent youth to the depths of despair 

Now that first class year has arrived the 
fair,' tale is coming to a close J. J B is living 
his lifetime dream downstairs as company

History, Marine Corps 

Gina has epitomized the 
"professionalism" since the 11th grade, when 
she got her first job at the Boat School. Skate 
issue, gift shop saleswoman, anything to walk 
the hallowed shores of the Severn. Not that 
she was interested m the men — that's why 
she walked out Gate 1 to Marina 's. Cute outfit 
■ snug white pants and a black T-shirt (What? 
No glittery "Foxy B . . .?} 

Despite 2 years of pre -abuse, DiNic showed 
up 1-Day with her pink polo shirt and black 
fish-net hose. Not one to let indoctrination 
cramp her style, Gina proved herself a strong 
supporter of plebe-firstie relationships. She 
snagged the defmative Bancroft Hall gigolo 
plebe year but gave him up temporarily to 
pursue more diverse entertainment, so what 
were those leadership techniques you learned 
at Coast Guard again'!' 

First class year and Gina was still in pursuit 
of the plebe-firstie relationships. A little case 
of lust for the untried man, perhaps? Well a 
little reflection and she realized that only B. 
S. could fulfill her dreams of the illusive "real 
man. " Gina alway's gets her man — but does 
be know it^ 

Does the Corps deserve all this talent^ 
Maybe not ■ but they'll never find a harder 
working, more persistant, dedicated person 
than you. Disco babe. Take it easy on 'em. 
Gina — a gentle breaking in does wonders for 
the long term relationship! God bless you and 
remember those of us who love vou!

Coming from Versailles, Ky (not pron-

had to leave her house in the forest before 
donning on the white works of the \aval 
Academy In the four years that I have known 
Kathy I will always remember that she was the 
most conscientious person at the Academy - 
a person who is as unlimited as her dedication 
to principles and her devotion to ideals - a 
person who takes responsibility quietly but 
Cirmly. But she also values other things in life 
like her devotion to Jesus Christ, and to her 

It wasn't a surprise to anyone when she 
chose the Marine Corps at Service Selection 
because of her dedication to the high 
standards that she requires. She will surely do 
well, and with God's guidance she has the 
knowledge of what she is to do in the future 
All of us will surely miss her but I the most. 
Thanks for being the sister I never had.

Elrod was a timid young buck when he 
arrived at USNA from Massachusetts. 
Well-tanned and lean as a Plebe. Elrod found 
that sports were what made a man a man and 
went out for crew Half a year and a thousand 
blisters later Dan found that "individual 
workouts" were more to his likmg By the end 
of Plebe year Elrod has new goals in mind: 
eating and drinking Considered a mortal 
enemy of beer and food, Elrod set off on his 
quest with a vengeance. By Second-Class year, 
while armed with the two force member, Elrod 
was well on bis way to becoming a 
quiche-killer Elrod was often spotted m bars, 
decked out m leather, jeans, and high-tops, 
slamming brews and cavorting with women. 
Elrod spent his cruise time perfecting hia 
sleeping, drinking, and sexual education. 
Elrod knew by the beginning of First-Claas 
year that Nuclear Power was the only way to 
go. This was aided by his love of fast cars, 
expensive women, and leather Although a 
serious blowout kept Elrod from continuing to 
lift weights, he kept the 50 pounds he had 
gained by working out. The Thrift Inn will 
never forget when Eldrod, the Mayor. Dave-0. 
Dean-0. and Ayer buddy Pbilliam painted the 
town red land a little yellow'! Hopefully, 
Elrod will continue to have fun pursuing his 
hobbies of skiing, mountain climbing, ostrich- 
busting, driving, and eating Chinese food. 
Good Luck, Eldrod, and remember 'Any love 
is good love' does have its limits. And, Oh 
yeah, stay away from bridges.

How this tall, scrawny kid just m from 
Holland, Michigan made it through Plebe 
Summer will never cease to be a wonder. On 
the very first night be composed a panic letter 
home by the sole light of bis digit.al watch! 
Whether his parents ever received the letter 
IS doubtful, since after be left they moved to 
New Jersey without even telling him But, 
somehow, be managed to be the only one of 
us who did not suffer through Black Sunday! 

The next two years saw Harold studying his 
tail off so that when the stripes came he could 
dedicate himself to them. And who says that 
he hated the Puerto Rican kid"^ Just because 
one time he took him skiing in the Poconos 
and on the first lesson pushed him down the 
most difficult slope . . . Like Harold used to 
say, "Go for the Gusto!" 

It came as no surprise when Harold became 
our first set Company Commander our senior 
year. He did much more than was expected; 
he even used 3-striper libs nearly every night 
and was consequently admitted to the Square 
Club. Good luck as a pilot! (GML) 

Now that all of the truth can be told, noni 
of the truth will be told. For 4 years Harry 
(HTD) has enjoyed many things, including 10 
roommates. 11 enemies. 3 years of enjoyment. 
1 semester of torture and another one of 
freedom. He looks forward very much to 
enjoying bis USNA stay, in retrospect. 

Harold is a current member of Co. 2's

notified of bis acceptance until a week before 
"/■■ day. From the moment Brian walked 
through the gate it was clear he was not to 
be en ordinary midshipman. The barbers 
fought for the privilege of cutting his hair and 
the Firsties were surprised to find Brian 
singularly unimpressed Since that time Brian 
like everyone else has had bis ups and downs. 
Both on the track team, where he was a four 
year varsity letter winner and in the classroom 
where be consistently waited for finals to puU 
out his grades. Lately we have learned to 
expect the unexpected from Brian. Just when 
we thought that he would go on breaking

Although a true Texan, Deano came

away with". In fact, as a Plebe, he had a better 
stereo system set up in our room that most 
upperclass bad. Dean managed to get three 
tickets in the yard as an underclass, and 
somehow keep bis driving privileges. It was 
youngster year that Dean decided some classes 
weren't that important so he decided to show 
up when he felt like it. He continues this 
practice. You could always find 2 or 3 fans, 
a space heater, a TV, a case of road sodas, or 
a bottle of bubbly in bis closet. Dean 's pursuit 
of exiting experiences has been unending. He's 
found them in places like his motor boat on 
Great South Bay and his first car, "Old 
Betsy". After going to Houston with him 
spring break I could hardly call him a 
prejudiced Southerner. Two at once? Dean has 
been accused for his longing of very local 
women (like down the haU). but I can say that 
it 'a only wishful thinking. Dean will do 
anything anywhere, but our best times have 
been on the road. Cold beers, stogies, and loud 
muBic. Not to mention Pb . . . Philiiam. Dean's 
one weakness is his occasional forays into 
babbling. Some of his favorites are, "Yo Davy. 
Hey Bob, Yanaaaaa, Ah good morning - good 
morning. Young John, she was on to me, didja 
book her up?, coke, spirte, egglow. What's 
Up?". Dean was sometimes hard to live with

she spent so much of her time in Rickover 
learning to be an engineer. But, we her 
roommates know the rest of the story! 

Every person has his own little quirks - but 
Linda has some goodies. On a typical evening, 
a visit to Linda's room would find her at her 
desk in a multi-striped or tiger bathrobe. 
During the visit, she might search her closet 
several times and try on half of her clothes. 
You might also notice an old pro keds box in 
her locker. Among other unusual things, you 
will find a very expensive desk stapler in the 
box - be sure to ask the story behind this. If 
you are staying the night, be sure to remind 
Linda to brush her teeth, or else she will 
remember at some odd hour in the early 
morning and you will wake up to see her 
brushing them. Also remind her to put her 
mouthguard in or you might be awakened to 
the sound of her grinding her teeth. Quirks are 
fun and Linda, we really enjoyed living with 
you. (I'm glad you never brought a cat in!)

Dave came to us from that never-never land 
called California after a short stay at a normal

Summer and once academic year started he 
never studied, a tradition he has personally 
upheld for four years. If you 're looking for 
Dave he can usually be found in the company 
wardroom or sleeping. Dave bought a gorgeous 
Austm-Healy for first class year and totaled 
it before the new year arrived Since it was the 
fourth car Dave had totaled he decided to give 
them up. He went out and bought his dream 
machine. A brand new Harley -Davidson that 
weighs more than your average import car. 
Dave was never a slouch for having a good 
time and a clogged sink and a bush under a 
certain bridge can attest to that fact. He 
claimed he got sea sick on his Belgian Foreign 
Exchange Cruise but 31 pints of beer in one 
night in heavy seas may have contributed to 
his illness. Dave's choices in women have often 
caused me anxiety, fortunately he is not 
planning on marriage any time soon. Dave will 
always be remembered for his different 
attitudes. He was the Company expert on Far 
East Religions, martial arts, table etiquette, 
punk music, languages, and World Travel. I 
feel that while Dave is spending his 
Cryptology career trying to Hgure out the 
enemy, his friends will spend their time trying 
to figure out Dave. Good luck Dave-0. and

it waa more like a community college instead

ing! The Sco'a life here can be broken up into 
pbaaea or ettitudea: Plebe Year Scott waa the 
kind of guy that had to carry buckets around 
to keep from drowning in bis own sweat. He 
even uaed to wake up at 0546 every morning 
to abine a light on hia greaae belt buckles to 
make sure they were perfect. Youngster year 
Scottie chilled out a little bit. Why be even 
blew it at the atriper board when he explained 
to them that long hair waa the in thing. Second 
Claaa year Sco's favorite saying was "If it's not 
on the teat I'm not going to learn it". As a

up with the Academy in bis backyard be felt 
be knew the ropes around here well enough 
to sleep through Plebe Summer. Well, "THE 
DOCTOR" made it through that unforgettable 
summer without sustaining any serious neck 
injuries and we all cheered. Since then Mike 
has stayed awake long enough for us all to 
learn to appreciate him in everything he has 
done for us. His unwavering faith in God and 
bis concern and care for others has encouraged 
all those who have crossed his path. Mike has 
left a lasting impression on us all by his 
willingness to obey the Master's voice in 
everything be does. Although we hesitate to 
give Mike up to the Marine Corps we can be 
assured that we will see him soon enough on 
a very distant shore. 

"Watch ye. stand fast in the faith, quit you

Robert A. Beach 


Marion, North Carolina 

Physical Science, Navy Air 

Bob Beach came to USNA from the 
beautiful raountains of North Carolina with an 
ardent desire to fly off a carrier. Along that 
path lay such namee aa Beacher. Screech, and 
Space Cadet. During Piebe Summer, Bob 
learned the meaning of "corkin' off" so well 
that he later earned a varsity Z by bis skill 
in the classroom bead jerk, and advanced 
studies in oamoaia. Bob'a other interests 
included company sheet posters, army 
projects, women, and model building (or the 
lack thereoO. It must be noted that the bizarre 
proportions of Bob's unbuilt model collection 
has nothing to do with hia famoua airbrush 
waxing for floors. Always sober. Bob will be 
bered for his sensitivity, good nature, 
an d ina bility to wres tie. He offers his 
companymatea many thanks for helping him 
through, and his claasmates the best of 
fortunes. We will, as always, be looking for him 
in the skies overhead.

Byron E. Bond 


San Bernadino, California 

Computer Science, Surface Line 

Bonda came to USNA after a year at Cal 
State. For the first two years here, he devoted 
most of his time to studies and day-dreaming 
of his fiancee back home in San Bernardino. 
About this time, Bondo saw the light and 
found that East Coast girls could be just as 
much fun as West Coast girls, and broke his 
romantic ties to California. Hondo's social Ufe 
blossomed, and soon his 'San Bernardino 
Shuffle' became the hit from Annapolis to 
Georgia. Spring Break second class year saw 
Bondo playing the tourist in Florida. With 
camera in hand running shoes on, and a newly 
found sunburn, he assaulted Florida. No one 
could keep up with Byron, his stomach was 
better than a clock, and we made sure he got 
three meals to keep him happy The rambling 
spirit had gotten into Byron though, and it 
was off to the far east for l/c cruise. Japan 
was an educational experience for Byron, and 
Subic Bay was a physical one. Although Bondo 
cut loose during his travels, back at USNA he 
was always an easy going guy. Byron could be 
found many a day working on a favorite 
model, and we'll never forget his galactic fleet 
which grew and grew and . . . Byron bad time 
for much more than modeling though, and was 
always eager to help anyone with academic 
problems as be was a whiz with the books. 
When the Nukes started chasing Byron for 
Service Selection, he found a quick solution to 
bis problem. Who else would have told a 
Captain that Submariners weren't cool?! 
Successful both professionally and in 
academics, Byron will always be remembered 
as a hard worker. Bondo always knew he 
wanted to be a Surface Line Officer and will 
be a great asset to the Surface Navy. Good 
luck and God bless to a good roommate and 
a great friend. 


Alex T. Casimes 

Seattle, Washington 

Systems Engineer, Surface Line 

Aldo came to the "uncoUege" after a year 
of prep school and a year of real college. He 
was a service brat and claims his current 
hometown as Seattle. Washington. Al fell from 
singledom a bit earlier than the average mid 
and is also one of the honored few that 
retained the same girl for all four years of his 
"controlled happiness". He also has the 
unique situation of being outranked by his 
lovely fiancee for she is a 2nd Lt. in the Army 
(I guess Army isn't all bad). Although Al will 
not be getting married in the yard, be will be 
getting married only three days after 

Plebe year, Alex got a reputation with the 
upperclass in our company for punching a 
second class during a raid on his room. But 
even though he wasn't a smash hit with the 
upperclass, he was popular with bis room- 
mates. Alex, being a staunch Greek, has an 
inbred love for food and always brought back 
his homecooked specialties from his fiancee's 

Youngster year Al was a hard pedaling 
member of the bicycle club "Team Navy". He 
was also a dedicated member in good standing 
of his favorite ECA. the MSA club, for three 
years. Finally, in his first class year he became 
a loyal member of the Shakey's pizza club with 
bis own monogrammed table at the pizza 

Aldo came in wanting to fly but fate would 
dictate otherwise, and soon be lost his 20/20 
vision. So Al decided to go surface line, the 
surface fleet is lucky to have him. Break a 
"kick" Al. 

Raymond S. Clark 


Cincinnati, Ohio 

Ocean Engineering, Naval 


If the Naval Academy had not happened to 
ftay. he'd be sitting in Cincinnati right now 
eating a sack of White Castles and watching 
Caddyshack for the 98tb time. Instead. 
Pensacola is getting a sharp aviator and a fine 
officer. How did the Academy make Ray what 
be is today? It sure wasn't plebe year - Ray 
never had one. Basketball and a Spring Break 
SCUBA expedition were 4/c Clark's only 
challenges - no upperclass ever phased him. 
But then, Diff Eqn's hit him youngster year. 
For the first time, he actually bad to study 
during study hour. It was a long year for both 
Ray and bis plebes (what a flamer'.). Actually, 
most of his frustrations were taken out on his 
guitar in his rock-and-roll band - Blind Alley. 
Second class year kept Ray busy becoming an 
Ocean Engineer. Of course there were always 
band trips on the weekends and Benny Hill 
at nights. Ray left our company for a while 
first class year to serve the battalion. (What 
does the Batt Sub-Cdr really do'') His 
3-striper liberty saved us more than once from 
Neeb's Loaf or Ham Fransisco. That Christ- 
mas we found Ray's second home ■ Mexico. 
We never realized what a fascination he had 
for sombreros, scrapes, and switchblades. We 
also discovered his major obsession - downhill 
skiing. Macb speeds in jets will be nothing new 
to Ray 

Ray has proved to be a good friend to 
everyone, and a quality Ocean Engineer The 
skies of Pensacola will get used to seeing Ray 
in his happiest hour. Ray is truly an officer 
and a gentleman. We hope Na\y Air treats 
him right. 

Charles Richard Donnelly, Jr. 


Savannah, Georgia 


Dick came to the Academy a southern boy. 
Although he always looked as if he'd juBt 
stepped out of GQ magazine. Dick actually 
stepped out of the fleet, spent a year an NAPS 
and then came to Navy. Always a competitor, 
Dick played JV football his plebe year. 
Through good times and bad. Dick's easy 
going attitude seemed to get him through. 
When youngster year rolled around, a number 
of Donnelly traditions started: long hair, 
weekend rendevous (even some weeknighta) 
and the Honduran moved in. As if plebe year 
wasn 't enough torture. Dick cut 25 pounds and 
earned bis letter on the ISO's team. Second 
class summer saw Dick and Fust playing 
SEAL out in Coronado. Somehow they both 
made it back from BUDS in one piece. Second 
class year, Dick spent many "all nighters" in 
the wardroom hitting the books when he 
wasn 't watching the tube. The summer finally 
arrived, and Dick set out for Australia. We 
wouldn 't have believed the stories except he 
brought back pictures. After that, everyone in 
the company tried to figure out a way to get 
to the land down under. First class year saw 
Dick coaching the company basketball team to 
its best record in a long while, making road 
trips with the rest of the "G-Team". and 
continumg romantic forays in the area. Always 
a good friend and dependable classmate. Dick 
will be a valuable addition to the Corps. Good 
luck and God Bless. Thanks John.

Moe started out bis Academy life with a 
number of exploits Plebe summer. While the 
rest of U8 were sound asleep. Moe would 
conduct individual recons on other companies. 
Moe went on to Plebe year trying to decide 
whether to be a track man or a hockey player 

— hockey won out. After Plebe summer 
decided that to calm himself he would have 
to get up at 0430 so he could jump out of 
airplanes at Ft. BenningAirborn! Youngster 
year Moe was a cornerstone of the "Thirsty 
Five" — / buy, we fry. Moe continued with 
Aero until the Aero profs Hnally shot him 
down. The Green Toad smiled on Moe and the 
Ac-Board lost! Moe decided that he needed a 
real job ao he decided to become Mr. \TNA 

— besides, he got the only phone in the 
company. First class summer was a big time 
of change for Moe. A Marine option Cruise 
(and the eye test) changed this hardcore flyer 
into one of the few, the proud, the you know 
who. Wendy changed this hardcore bachelor 
into one of the many, the proud, the soon to 
be wed. Nobody saw much of Moe first class 
year, except Wendy that is — / wonder if he 
even worked up a sweat jogging to her house? 
Moe is destined for success in the Corps. We

Greely, Colorado 

Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear 


With names like Forn Dog, Fornicate. Corn 
Dog, and Homey Forney. Dave has faired well 
He came to us from the Colorado Rockies, 
where he attained his easy going manner; 
which also left him in good stead for plebe 
year. It seemed for Forn that be just laid down 
one plebe summer night and woke up to find 
it was youngster year . . - with no more plebes 
brought alot more time for parties. To this 
goal, Dave found his sponsors and their boat 
and their beer and the time to enjoy them, 
while still holding over a 3.0. He got smart and 
changed his major from math to something 
real like Mech E. Much to his adxisors 
disbelief, Forn has blown them away. Even the 
Rocket couldn't slow him down. Then he met 
Anita! Somehow we couldn't believe he could 
continue when every evening be would spend' 
2 or 3 hours on the phone, but he did. He even 
got the bonus of getting Anits to say yes and 
became the last to fall to the sound of wedding 
bells in his room. I guess he had to after 
getting caught low level necking by Capt. Cub 
Scout in the midstore parking lot. During 
Second class summer, Forn went on a crash 
course in money saving ■ Girls aren't cheap ■ 
and ended up eating only P & J sandwiches 
which makes it difficult to believe that while 
at Quantico he was in the color squad. You 
see Forn is only 5'8' and weighs 140 lbs. Even 
though Forn is little he is loved that is why 
for Christmas he was given an anchor so he 
wouldn't blow away. Fortunately, Dave opted 
to go submarines, I couldn't see him dragging 
that weight topside of a windblown ship.

When the discussion turns to max guys, the 
conversation is not complete without mention- 
ing Big John Fusto. John is one of the older 
generation. He spent some time at Merrimak 
college and then enlisted In the navy as an 
biteUigence (?) Specialist. He then entered the 
BOOST program and found out how much fun 
it was to watch the sunrise in San Diego day 
after day after day. Long days and nights 
proved worthwhile, though, as be found 
himself in Thirsty Third with a short, 
obnoxious squad leader Plebe Summer After 
several thousand trips to the library with his 
little index card boxes, John realized that you 
sometimes got ta say "what the heck!" John's 
final selection of a major in Oceanography 
came just before his selection of Laura as bis 
beautiful wife. The traumatic experiences as 
Ail upperclass left an impact on John that he'll 
never forget. A short jaunt to San Diego to 
BUDS (hey, whats in the mud?!) netted a 
picture of John in the catalog. I'm sure he'd 
rather forget that. How many all-nighters 
John put under bis belt in the pursuit of 
academics will probably never be known, but 
the credit card, ring, and car loan came along 
to soothe the pain, (say YAAAAAAH) He 
always enjoyed a good beating if Greg's coffee 
just wasn't right or if the 'fish' got out of band. 
What else can be said about an all around 
great guy? With God, a loving family behind 
him, and Laura by his side. Big John will 
undoubtedly be set for a bright future in the

Tom came to USNA because his Blue and 
Gold officer told him that it was a "Party" 
school. Instead, he received the shock of hie 
life. Fortunately, the Academy was able to 
adapt . . . Plebe year saw Tom keeping a low 
profile, except for playing cards with Lemon 
and tormenting Hickory. Youngster year and 
Tango opened a textbook for the last time, 
prefering sleep to academics. But that didn't 
keep him from qualifying for 'stars" (except 
for a low performance grade.) Second class 
summer came and Tango went to Hawaii with 
Zieg and Schuitzie, where he gave his traveling 
companions demolition derby lessons in the 
Fairmonster. Protramid and P-cola saw Tango 
and Zieg going straight from Sff beer night at 
Rosie'a to the X-country course at 05(X). The 
dynamic duo set the record for the slowest 
time ever recorded in P-cola, not bad! Second 
class year and Tom roomed with Porky and 
Willie for the first time. Every weekend meant 
road trip, and Tango was totally unselfish at 
Hood's spring parties. He was almost willing 
to exchange the shirt off bis back with one of 
Hood's fmest; Indian giver! First class summer 
and Tango's travels continued this time to 
Europe. Besides having a good time, he taught 
a certain Italian businessman an important 
lesson. Plebe detail bad time spent between 
the rack., Mr. Pip's, and the visa money 
machine. Academic year was spent trying to 
perfect the no work, all play lifestyle. Finally,

be a Marine aviator, much to his mother's 
dismay. Good luck in the Corps . . .

Lisbon, Ohio 

Ocean Engineering, Marine Air 

Mike came to us from the thriving 
metropoUs of Lisbon. Ohio, a town famous for 
its proximity to "The Nail. " Starting out with 
his best foot forward. Mike impressed me by- 
returning from our first night out and 
mistaking the trash can for a urinal. With no 
place to go but upward. Mike set a new low 
by ending behind bars in Providence. R.I. and 
initiating "marathon drinking. " Ahng with 

weekends, and women. Who can forget the 
"360 cinema" Mike treated Tango. Bake, and 
myself to. Soon after this he reached the top 
of the driving pinnacle by four wheeling at the 
University of Maryland in the tbunderchicken. 
Driving was not all Mike excelled at. shortly 
after Christmas he discovered that he made 
the Machine's top ten list. Second class year 
began with the inaugural trip of the flying 
Hawaiians and Mike proved that one could 
exist on cornhorns. ding-dongs, sun. surf, and 
beer indefmately. Protramid immortalized the 
flying Hawaiians: free beer, stumpy, inexpen- 
sive beer, pilots in P-cola. the "nuclear 
lounge", the guardian of peace, and the beaver 
dash exemplified the summer. During that 
academic year. Mike was not around much. 
Mike demonstrated his true professional 
attitude by cheerfully volunteering for plebe 
detail. First class year was then thrust upon 
Mike. After a grueling six weeks in LA. for 
summer cruise and a delightful stint of plebe 
detail, he returned to USNA to captain the 
men's varsitv swim team. That was also the 
year he led the Marietta bridge burning feaat, 
which was quite a feather in his cap. 1 wish 
him all the luck in Quantico and in P-cola.

Out of four years of determination we put 
together our own little volume of history that 
we may Cinally place upon the shelf of life. It 
IS unique to each of us, yet. it binds our lives 
in a way no one else could ever know. 

It could be a game at times, a challenge, or 
an adventure. But at others it could be as 
brutal as a nightmare. Still, it was four years 
of our lives. A part of you and a part of me. 
And that will remain with me always. 

Thanks for everything guys.

Bob hails from the land of soft pretzels and 
"cheesesteaks". Philadelphia. After a short 
stunt at Wyoming Seminary Prep School, Bob 
"rolled" into the Academy at 5-8 and 191 lbs 
"Firsties" were afraid to harass him for 
fear be would bite. Since he never talked, 
several rumors surfaced about bis identity. 
Some pondered what crime he had committed 
for the judge to give him the option of this 
place or prison. Others thought he was the 
younger brother of John Belushi. We were all 
relieved, however, when Bob uttered his first 
sentence Well, actually be "tested his lungs." 

As academic year started. Bob quickly 
established himself as a man of action He 
certainly wasn't a man of words. After getting 
down to a trim 158 lbs. Bob made the varsity 
lightweight football team and began an 
illustrious athletic career here at the Academy. 
He gained All-League honors 3 years in a row 
and was elected team captain in his last 
season Academically, he also established an 
excellent reputation as he was honored as a 
USNA scholar -athlete. 

Bob's favorite pastime is getting as 
comfortable as humanly possible. He was often 
found wrapped up in a warm blanket nith 
both the heater and fan on. He says he doesn 'f 
like being too hot or too cold. After 
graduation. Bob plans to pursue a career with 
the Civil Engineer Corps and a life with Lisa, 
the special girl who has supported him these 
past four years. Best of luck and God bless.

was safe from Mosh. Hood. UMBO. George- 
town: if the Mosh-mobile could make it. Terry 
was there. We'll never forget names like

Terry will. But Terry was active in many other 
areas as well. He was the company Hockey 
Stud for three years until bis knee convinced 
him that ice was better in mixed drinks. And 
speaking of drinking, never to be outdone by

knew the dividing line between work and play. 
A computer whiz. Terry has helped many a

plentiful. Bret spent most of his spare time in 
high school with "the boys" pulhng pranks, 
and hstening to no music. His plebe year 
roommate can attest to this because Bret had 
some trouble Hnding out who John Lennon 
was. Bret got along with everyone during that 
Hrst year, even the upper class, which his 
plebe year grease reflects. Also during that 
rsrst year away from home a certain youngster 
(who would eventually become our roommate 
a vear later) put Bret back in his place by 
telling him he had a "smarl-ass attitude." 

Youngster year saw Bret earn a varsity 
letter - a Black jV that is. Bret and four of 
our classmates thought Friday nights were 
getting a little boring and decided to have a 
party. This escapade earned Bret a spot on the 
early morning breakfast club for a month. 

Bret hopped through second class year, even 
though it was a tough one for the mecb. eng. 
major. He spent many hours with his nose in 
bis books and a ruler in his mouth. Bret 
studied hard during the week, but when the 
weekend came it was time to take a break. His 
first three day break saw Bret making a road 
trip that he will never forget. Even since that 
day be has had "Georgia on His Mind- " 

Bret took off for Europe on a well desened 
two week vacation during first class summer 
where he managed to get himself in some

Patrick Olivier came to the Naval Academy 
from sunny CaUfomia as a member of the 
Class of Eighty-three. He quickly became 
famous for his 0900 five o'clock shadow that 
even a titanium razor was unable to conquer. 
After a great youngster year with the other 
members of the "dirty half-dozen". Pat took 
a sabbatical from Na\y. But alas, be could not 
stay away long and rejoined thirsty third as 
a proud member of the Class of Eighty-four. 
As a second class he made his infamous burger

Peaser came to USNA the hard way- After 
spending one and a half years in the fleet and 
fifteen months at BOOST, the -old man" 
finaUy made it. Taking charge at once as 
guide-on bearer. Peaser led THIRD COM- 
PANY through many march-overs and 
P-rades with bis dad and brother always on 
our left flank. 

Greg went through more pounds of coffee 
beana in his four years at USNA than King 
Hall has since its original existence. You could 
always count on Greg for a cup of home brew 
when burning the midnight oil. 

Although at times considered a sweat, 
Peaser was in fact a very hard worker whose 
diligence made life in Bancroft a Uttle more 
tolerable. Who else would have thought of 
providing donuts and juice for the whole 
company before the march on in Pasadena? 
First class year as company commander, he 
was even accused of conning the company 
officers out of Friday inspections. It almost 
worked Greg. 

Through the influence of one of our interim 
company officers, Peaser will be leaving the 
Navy to wear the uniform of a Marine. With 
the support and love of his parents, to whom 
he is eternally thankful, Greg will accomplish 
many things in his life. The Navy's loss is the 
Corps' gain. SEMPER FIDELIS and God

Alexandria, Virginia 

Operations Analysis, Navy Air 

The "Fish", as he was affectionately known, 
came to USNA from, who knows where? Navy 
brat you know! Mike wasted no time in 
making friends and daily schedules (even 
included when to brush bis teeth}! Mike 
became the recipient of weekly beatings by 
some of his most popular classmates, which be 
normally provoked upon himself. Fish came to 
the Academy gung-ho on submarines but those 
Nukes showed him the light! He now wants 
to fly P-3's (NFO) and hunt down Soviet Subs. 
Michael chose Operations Analysis for bis 
major and forever told us how wonderful the 
computer was. It was so wonderful that Fish 
got to tuck NATS into bed at 0400 on several 
occasions. Third Company clocks were 
synchronized at 1900 daily when Mike aped 
down the ball to make the news on TV (never 
missed it!). Fish took on the job of fencing 
captain his senior year and hoped to go to 
Nationals (again). His other bobbies included 
bicycling, skiing, running, and occasionally a 
visit to Italy, where he grew up. Mike's fluent 
Itahan was only surpassed by his financial 
prowess. With any luck, this guy is going to 
make bucks. Anyone who drives a '63 Rambler 
that he called the "Sex Machine" (we strongly 
doubted this one) and fences, can 't be all bad. 
The Pease Family shuttle will always be 
remembered and appreciated by those who 
needed a helping band. Michael always looked 
out for bis classmates. You're not the neatest 
person in the world Mike, but you're working 
on it. Best of Luck in all you do Fish! Go For 
It! Go Navy Air! 

Patrick C. Rabun 


Farmerville, Louisiana 

Applied Science, Surface 

The pride of the Farmerville Farmers came 
to USNA without any knowledge of the sea. 
He sure made up for it though, with a 4.0 PCR 
average and command of his own YP. Pat was 
not quits sure what was going on Plebe 
Summer, but he kept a low profile and 
managed to catch on to the routine very 
quickly. A firm believer that gouge never 
really helped anyone, he managed to excel 
without it, amazing us with back to back 4.0's 
youngster year. But Pat's accompUshments 
never went to his head. He would always put 
down bis own homework to help a classmate. 
Indeed, he saved many a soul with hours of 
E.I the night before an exam. Much of Pat's 
hard work was directed to YP Squadron. 
Perhaps the most capable mariner in the class 
of '84, Pat was the CO of our Battalion's boat, 
and probably earned more color points for our 
company than two people combined. Pat's 
greatest refuge was Burger King — be went 
there so much on the weekends that we 
thought he had a part-time job. First class 
year saw Pat in the position of Academic 
Officer, where he undertook the title of "the 
Originator". During his reign of terror, Pat 
clearly put the fear of God into anyone who 
skipped a class. Pat is one of those guys that 
you do not come across very often in life. Who 
else would take your duty on the weekend? 
(except when he was skiing) Integrity, 
intelligence, and a sense of humor are all 
trademarks of this fine claaamate. Pat, the 
Navy is fortunate to have an officer such as 
you. Good luck in Surface Line to a faithful

Sonora, California 

Electrical Engineer 

Clay was a veteran of the Navy school 
system when he came to the open arms of 
Mother B. He never got use to the plebe way 
of life and thus became The Organizer, 
planner of parties and arranger of recon raids. 
All of the fun of being a plebe got to Clay, 
though, so be became a dedicated member of 
the crew team. It didn 't take long for him to 
discover where bis energy was better spent, so 
Clay said so long to Hubbard Hall forever and 
went to the Pbillipines for Youngster cruise 
where be recuperated nicely. Come Youngster 
year. Clay became an adopted family member 
of the MacCoys. It was here that Clay learned 
how to drive a boat, catch racoons, build 
bombe, and deliver newspapers. Once when he 
was in a professional mood took the initiative 
and taught the 4th class family members how 
to paint the beating vents green. Fortunately 
it waan 't long after when Clay met a lovely lass 
from Sevema Park. She bought him some nice 
clothes and the rest is history. Clay did the 
right thing by becoming the 2nd member of 
the married room. The last year at USNA wss 
spent in pursuit of academic excellence and 
hands-on experience in Electrical Engineering. 
Clay never failed to log leas than 20 hours a 
week on Qbert and he became the last 
surviving EE in our company. Well, here's to 
the beat of memories and we all wish you and 
Kathy the best Break a "kick" Clay.

San Mateo, California 

Mechanical Engineering. EDO 

Rumor has it that Glen's mother filled out 
his application to the Academy, hut once he 
armed he adapted well to the system. Most 
people can be catagonzed by their living 
habits, but SchulUie is not like most other 
people. During the weekdays be can be found 
in Nimtz n-ith an armload of books and his 
HP 330. (With reverse polish notation) But 
during the weekend he can be found in the 
nearest gutter face down The stories start 
with spring break plebe year by being 
rhumb-cuffed at BrowTi. Here Glen began 
enduro-dnnking for five days. It made for an 
interesting return trip as Schultzie ipassiveiyi 
cleared an entire box car. Youngster year he 
took up a new hobby at Disco called "Pour 
and Run" This was also the year he earned 
the "Punctuality Award" for his remarkable 
metabolic clock. Second class summer Tango 
and Mike learned that Glen did not know his 
left from his right as he "toured" them around 
Hawaii. Another adventure that was encoun- 
tered was "Death Ride with Stumpy, the 
One-legged Outlaw. " First class year has been 
no different from the other years. It started 
nith a weekend of jacuzzing with "Party Slut" 
and "Party Pig" The last "great" reported of 
Glen was a burning bridge in Marrietta. With 
these memories in mind we wish Glen the best 
of luck in the future.

Dave, or D.B.D., as he is known back in his 
native home ro»7j of Indianapolis, came to 
V-S.N-A. by a rather strange route. Dave came 
to the Naiy by way of the U.S. Army. After 
spending a long strenuous year at the United 
States Militar\- Academv Prep School or 
MAPS as It IS more commonly called. Dave 
joined the blue and gold team highly 
motivated and dedicated to the .\'a\y way He 
had a hard time ridding himself of the 
brainwashing placed on him by the Army, why 
once when told to lead a cheer at the table 
he pounded on the table and then yelled at 
the top of his lungs "Go Army!". You can 
imagine the bazmg he received for that. Well 
plebe summer soon ended and Dave turned all 
of his energy into trying to meet the academic 
challenge placed before him. While not always 
successful at his academic endeavors he is one 
of the few people that can say that they have 
lived through five consecutive Ac-Boards. 
While haling to spend almost all of his leave 
time here at U.S.N.A Dave was still able to 
find time for a social life. Yes, Dave is also 
joining another team . "The few. the proud, 
the married". Yep despite all of the obstacles 
placed in his path Dave will make it out to 
the fleet on time and married yet well the 
Army has lost a good man and the Sa\y is 
gaining a good officer, and Danielle is getting 
a great man for a husband. Good Luck and

Francois came into Plebe summer from EI 
Paso. TX without a clue It was quite an 
abrupt change in lifestyle from his laid back 
Texan atmosphere to the rigors of USNA. But 
Francois quickly (though not necessarily 
pleasantly! met the squad leader Mr Gerbig 
and element leader Mr. Davitt. The result was 
a long plebe year. But, Francois proved he was 
tougher than the system, and survived plebe 
year He even earned bis Airborne wings. 
Youngster cruise turned out to be the light at 
the end of the tunnel. Francois quickly found 
the California lifestyle to suit his favorite 
tastes. Prestige and a woman in every port. He 
always had an eye for flash. Never did a year 
pass when there was not a sports car displayed 
under his blotter. Between skiing, flying, and 
a love for fast cars, one could not help but 
think that he was James Bond's proteg^. But 
life at USNA was not always smooth sailing. 
Youngster year found Francois battling out 
academic obstacles until he was rescued by the 
Poli-sci department. After finding bis niche in 
foreign languages (after all. how else do you 
meet those French speaking ladies'^), be began 
to cruise through academics with an occasional 
poli-sci paper fall-nighter of course!). As far 
as first class year, it was only a matter of 
counting don-n the days for Francois to reach 
his ultimate goal: a USNA grad - What 
prestige! Francois - fair winds and following

Gary H. Watson Jr. 


Audubon, New Jersey 

Naval Architecture, Nuclear 


Gary was a model mid; the kind that belongs 
in the sample room. He had a funny habit of 
intendy studying, getting good grades, being 
meticulously neat and organized, and being a 
fountain of engineering gouge. On top of all 
that he was a top notch drummer and a star 
goalie on Thirsty Third's Heldball team. It was 
the drum set that became his escape from the 
daily grind. Guy always had an ear for music, 
whether it was listening to bis radio after taps 
plebe year or blasting Ted Nugent at 150dB 
before a p-rade. A member of "Blind Alley". 
Gary helped bis band to become the premiere 
rock group at the academy. For bis efforts, he 
was elected president of the Modern Music 
Bands and keeper of the keys! As time passed. 
Guy came under the spell of the "Nukes ($) 
and fell in love with our silent service while 
his roommate saw the light and went air. Some 
say that be sold bis soul to rock-n-roll and 
nuclear power, but when it came to first class 
cruise, he chose an ARS and the ring dance 
over a sub in the Atlantic. Tough choice? Not 
if his fiancee, Barbara, had anything to say 
about it! Best of luck to you and Barb in sunny 
Florida . - . "May the elite force be with you'"

Rafael wandered into the Academy from 
Honduras. He was all eyes and ears and could 
barely speak a word of English. After realizing 
this could be used to his advantage, homer. 
Rafael could reply to a rate he didn't know. 
"Sir. I don't understand". He also sidestepped 
another problem by being allowed to give his 
chow calls in Spanish. Little did we all know 
that we were being told all about the weather 
instead of the noon meal and officers of the 

Rafael did catch on to the "slang" English 
language, however, and soon was able to curse 
with the best of American sailors. He also 
managed to keep his head above water under 
a demanding engineering load, and under 
water before haircut inspections. The clean cut 
"wet look" gave way to the Georgetown 
civilian look on Friday nights. As of this date 
be hasn't been caught yet. 

After graduation. Rafael will leave his 
collection of "dreamy-eyed" American 
"babes" behind, when be goes back to serve 
In bis country's navy. 

Rafael's friendship and sense of humor was 
an inspiration to us all. even in the most 
dismal of times. Good luck Rafael, we wish you 
a safe, happy career and life. We'll miss vou. 


Patrick J. Walsh 

P. J. 

Kalispeil, Montana 

Applied Science, Navy Air 

Coach Walsh came here from a far off land 
that the rest of us have only heard about - 
Montana. He has suffered through four years 
of ribbing because of his origins. P. J. spent 
more hours defending Montana, "Bobeat" 
basketball, bis state's buffalo to women ratio, 
and the renowned metropolis of Kalispeil than 
he spent sleeping. Originally, P. J. was rather 
shy and introverted. His interests ranged from 
sports to sports! Hence the nickname "Coach ". 
He was a little bit of Jimmy the Greek, Ara 
Parsegan. Jim Thorpe, and Howard Cossell all 
rolled into one. You name the sport, date, and 
time; he 'd give you the teams, the victor, and 
the play by play. It didn 't take long for him 
to succumb to the social pressures of bis 
buddies. A metamorphosis occured and soon 
P. J. was in the thick of the pack. His 
biography would not be complete without 
mention of sailing dates. Hood College softball 
and postgame activities, Yale University. San 
Diego summer cruise apartment, his ability to 
sleep in any car at any time, spring break in 
Florida, wrestling at Shippensburg State, 
perfect attendance at football games, "poly- 
hester pants", "oooh sad", and his unparal- 
leled performance as a Hail of Fame member 
of the "G" team. He is truly an inspiration to 
us all. 

P. J. now leaves us for his calling as a Navy 
pilot. He has won our upmost respect and 
admiration as a friend, a colleague, and as a 
person. He is an inspiration for anyone who 
is trying to better himself. We thank him and 
wish him a safe and successful life. Good luck 
and God Bless.

Through four years of some very close calls 
we have finally made it! (The entire First Class

Rum Parties, and who could forget Newport,

but then it has always not been a bed of rosea. 
However, we all managed to pull each other 
through. The friendships we have made are 
something I will always treasure. As we all go 
our separate ways good-luck in the future, and 
thanks for everything.

Beverly M. Baker 


Newport News, Virginia 

Economics, Marine Corps 

Bev came to the Naval Academy from 
Newport News. VA after a year's detour at 
NAPS. Apparently. NAPS refined her study 
habits, and she could often be found looking 
at ^ires, steam, and navigation in between 
Harlequin romances. As for her own romances, 
there was this guy from a place called West 
Point, then one from Bancroft Hall. Both were 
eventually abandoned, and she discovered her 
true love at the end of second class year - a 
'66 Corvette. First class year, little thought 
was given to anything else until Christmas 
leave, when her 'vette caressed another car 
and Bev. out of jealousy, rediscovered her 
West Point friend. 

Bev set her sights on going Marine Corps 
from the start and, except for a brief look at 
Na\yNFO (what doyou mean I'm taoshorf'K 
she has not abandoned that goal. Nothing will 
stand in her way - not those ff(S>!! swimming 
tests or the PCR - and she will get what she 
wants. Good Luck and Semper Fi. 

Kevin M. Blum 


Coon Rapids, Minnesota 

Marine Engineering 

Nuclear Power, Submarines 

Kevin steamed into Annapolis straight from 
the fast attack sub U.S.S. Flaaber. His unique 
approach to plebe summer and plebe year 
included teaching Mid./Ens. Marrin a few 
things about marching; he shouldn't have 
grabed Kevin 's aim. One would think that the 
old man knew better than to greet upperclass 
with. "I'm Kevin Blum, glad to meet you. " 

As a second claas his enjoyment of Marine 
Flng. began to show as did his love/need for 
coffee and Pepsi and anything else which 
contained caffeine. For three years, he had to 
sleep as a plebe, Kev was often up until 3 or 
4 AM doing work. A true hall rat, many 
Saturday nights he would spend at his desk 
dressed in bis brown bathrobe - a cigarette in 
one hand and a coffee cup in the other. Ail 
that work seemed to pay off; an A in beat from 
the Rocket is proof enough. 

When not working. Gramps could be found 
watching T.V. His favorites were Hill Street 
Blues. Emerald Point, and Remmington 
Steele. Perhaps his fiancee, Janice, will fmd 
more productive uses of bis free time. 
Throughout the years Kevin has become a 
close and trusting friend. Good luck in 
marriage. We'll always remember you!

Applied Science-Management,

Ruth came to us from Mondovi. WI with 
high aspirations and a winning smile. She's 
leading after 4 years with even higher goals 
and a wider smile. She never lacked 
companionship and. not being one to waste 
valuable liberty time, always made it back 
seconds before the clock clicked. The 
upperclass never seemed to understand such 
things, especially the calamine lotion. They 
never managed to break her cheerful smile 
though, which was put to good use on the 
cheerleading squad. Rah. Youngster year she 
spent much of her time away from 4th 
company, but 2/c year she did manage to 
develop in-company subspecialities and finally 
settled down with Jim. Yes, an unlikely 
combination, but one which gave her ample 
justification for not studying. I'm sure the 
reason she was NPQ 'd was for using her brain 
too much, but that's the price you pay for 
grades, (khhee-hee-bee) Good luck in Supply 
Corps Ruth - a financial whiz like you will do 
well once you get your calculator figured out. 

Thanks for all the pep talks and rationaliza- 
tions about life, and for always being able to 
bring out the positive (a little more blush 
always sets things right.) Your guiding 
philosophy has been to enjoy each day as it 
came along; and well Ruth, you have! The four 
years have merged together quite happily with 
alot of fun times and great memories. Bertard

"There is always the pursuit of private 
excellence. "

Conks came to us from LA. via Newport 
where be spent a year at NAPS making real 
money. He came to "The World's Largest 
Skinner Box" and because of deep masocbistic 
tendencies, he chose computer science for bis 
major This was fine for me because be would 
spend many a late night at the confuser and 
leave me a room to myself where I could crank 
up heavy metal music which be detested. Also, 
these deep masochistic tendencies are proba- 
bly the reason for his being a cheerleader for 
three years and the goat for one year. He was 
a fun loving individual and could be found at 
every rumble, including those that he did not 
instigate. He always had girl trouble. He would 
chase girls out here but bis heart was always 
with some girl from the west coast. His one 
fault was his indecision about service selection. 
He would change his mind about once a day 
but he finally decided on Marine Air. The 
choice cost him his hair. And to think that he 
became qualified in submarines on bis 
Youngster Cruise. We wish bim the best and 
when our paths cross, we'll be happy to see 
that crazy Californian. 


Gary Scot DeBode

Sedro Wooly, Washington 

Applied Science, Nuclear 


Gary entered the Academy as a quiet, 
mild-mannered, soft spoken person. In other 
words, he bad "mellow" written all over his 
face, just ask our plebes. During our plebe 
summer, his most memorable acts included 
calling our platoon commander. Lisa, "Mom" 
when reporting the muster and being flustered 
at a come around to the extent of adding 
profanity to the Oath of Office. Poor guy. he 
was so embarrassed! Well, as youngster year 
arrived, it became evident Gary had two weak 
spots: women and money. He has proved this 
statement true time and time again (Subic. 
MWC. and VSNA). As far as women go. a 
pretty smile and a sweet personality was 
enough to book Gary. For a period of time be 
was known as "Gary Lion " and his motto was 
"always Wynn and never lose. "' / prefered "all 
for Wynn and Wynn for all. " Anyway, after 
Wynn came Marie. Once again my boy was 
hooked. But due to circumstances beyond his 
control, the relationship was put on hold . . . 
or should I say, "to be continued?!" As far as 
money is concerned Gary has no control. He 
likes to buy outrageous clothing or else take 
a girl to Georgetown. In fact, when the boys 
from Nuke Power came knocking at his door, 
they seduced bim with the green stuff It was 
all over after that — Orlando, Florida better 
get braced for some heavy partying because 
Gary DeBode is on bis way. Good luck 'ole

up glowing in the dark, I won't hold that 
against you.

wonderful Colorado. Plebe Summer found Jim 
hot, tired and busy, taking care of himself and 
bis roommate. Together with his other four 
roommates of the "Sweat Smack and Choke 
Barn, " Jim survived Plebe year. Youngster 
year and Second Class year found Dorbs 
heavily into heavy weights, studying, frisbee 
and "No Fun Allowed. " 

With a horizontal stripe of a first class Jim 
knew his time bad arrived. First semester the 
first Battalion learned to fear Jim 's half of the

of work but also a lot of freedom to do things 
he had been putting off for three years. With 
his pretty girl Amy married, Dorbs was due

She lived through plebe summer and 
strolled through Ac year - one of the privileges 
of destroying her legs at crew. 

Never one to waste any brain cells on trivia, 
Cyn proved that it is possible to graduate

carried this conservation of effort into her 
private life as well, and is now capable of 
talking with anyone without letting them 
know she doesn't know their name. 

One of Cvndi's major accomplishments was 
her success in breaking hearts, including a 
townie and whoop. Obviously Chuck was able 
to bring her eu-ound. and the past year and a

laughed at him. What a wav to start off the 

Matt joined the crazy band of brothers and 
turned into an excellent oarsman. From all the 
bard work he put into crew he managed to be 
a very sound sleeper. How many people do you 
know who can get a water balloon in the face 
and sleep through it? 

As a first class Matt discovered that there 
was a little more to life than crew and 
academics. It was always fun to watch Matt's 
face light up when be got psyched to party. 
Matt also learned about California girls. There 
were several trips made between California 
and here in just one year and there are more 
planned The problem is he likes it out there 

Another one of Matt's better traits is his 
organization. His room on a weekday looks like 
most do on weekends. It's hard to describe on 
a weekend, if you c&n find it. Once he even 
tried to teach his brother how to be organized.

known as 'Mom '. sailed to USNA to keep 
above the sinking shores of Lewes Beach, 
Delaware. For 2 years she sailed with the 
dinghy team traveling up and down the eeist 
coast. Having given that up, intramurals and 
drill then filled her afternoons when of course, 
there wasn't liberty. 

Priscilla always managed to find time for 
others. She was often found returning from 
weekends with baked goods for her friends 
who were stuck m the half It only stands to 
reason that this was learned from her family 
who brought the 'Delaware Food Service' to 
the home football games and put out the 
largest display of food than any tailgater in 
the lot. All of course were welcome. 

Many of us in fourth company have 'Pete' 
io thank for satisfying the late night cravings 
for munchies. An accomphshed food taster, I 
could always find something to eat in her 
room. We won't even mention a book of hers 
referred to as only T. T Her hospitality and 
kindness will long be remembered. KB 

Priscilla has been a true friend to everyone 
she has met and with her drive for perfection 
she should do very well in the CEC. Best of 
luck always, Priscilla. can't wait 'til our

Scott Fitzgerald Griffin 


Eden, North Carolina 

Mechanical Engineer, Naval 

Flight Officer 

Scott came to ub from North Carolina. The 
state which be claims led the South in the War 
of Northern Aggression. He began his quest 
for a varsity letter as well as his naval career 
wearing stars through both plebe and 
youngster year. Scott went through second 
class year with a bang, terrorizing both plebes 
and motorists. First class cruise found Scott 
in Sweden having the time of his life and 
finding, according to him, his third "only true 
love". He claims to have denied himself many 
earthly pleasures due to his love for Anna. 
However, we ail know that had he not denied 
himself these pleasures, the girls would have. 
First semester first class year Griff could 
always be heard praising the Mech. Eng. 
department as well as the "Rocket. " Also, be 
finally received his well deserved varsity letter 
in lightweight football. Second semester Scott 
became a first class, and even got his driving 
privileges back, though bis Jag XKE was still 
in the shop from the second class escapades. 
None of us will ever forget his singing I in 1814 
we took a little trip) or his Little Debbies 
(especially Murph). This wild-eyed southern 
boy chose a career in naval aviation. They 
couldn't be getting a better man! Good luck 
always Griff.

Pony. Lorem. Hipman and 'Lil are just a 
few of the names Larry answers to. He's 
flezible. If you know him from class, church 
or plebe detail you would probably say he's a 
very quiet person who's into the wood, but his 
bite is much bigger than his bark. Revenge is 
his middle name, so watch what you do. He 
may be too short to fly, but be does everything 
in a big way. 

One big thing is his stubbornness. You can 
talk all you want, but almost nothing will 
change his mind. That usually goes for women 
too. He let one play havoc for three years, but 
gave up that bad habit after detail. The magic 
of 3 stripes can go MILES. 

Another big thing to Larry ii 
ance. If GQ ever did a spread . 
of Boat School" he would be on 
every girl's dorm in the country 
is just right. If he spent his t 
instead of combing his hair he would have a 
4.0. If you look in his closet don't expect to 
find uniforms. It looks more like the racks in 
Cbessking. He even chose a ship in San Diego 
to keep his year-round tan going for the final 

Who knows if be will be a career man. If 
so. expect to see him in Proceedings. If not. 
look at the leaders in the Fortune 500 in a few 
years. Either way. you'll hear more from Hip.

bound weekends - which we ail took advantage 
of Notwithstanding the "accomplishments"

to study hour and regulation room equipment. 
Guess the company officer thought your good

such luck, 'cause we held out (it could be 
because we went to bed way before you ever 
did). Memories of spring break excursions to 
sunny Daytona Beach will be treasured for 
quit a while - and don't forget the side trip 
to Orlando, Remember that teddy bears make 
good companions when all else fails and never 
stop being an optimist. Good luck in

Douglas Paul Mitchell 


Yorba Linda, California 

Physical Science, Surface Line 

Mitch arrived at USNA, a quiet, laid back, 
Californian track star. He also had a healthy, 
full head of hair. He was slow adapting to the 
quick-paced, regimented Academy life. During 
Plebe Summer Doug must have been on a 
different time zone since he was late for almost 
every evolution, but that didn't matter, he 
always showed up in the wrong place anyway. 
He slid thru Plebe year almost unnoticed by 
all. except for "Patty" who loved to play with 
his belt buckle at formations. Youngster year 
proved to be the time for Mitch to come out 
of his shell. Friday nights he became a man 
of many faces. He amused us all by dressing 
up as kufus lour janitor). Hitler, CHiPs, and 
Shiek Abdul Mobamedjust to name a few. He 
also was the keeper of Prince Bytor - the 
Mighty Cowled Falcon. 

But the Y'ongster year antics took their toll 
on his grades. He promptly changed from 
engineering to Oceanography. But this was 
still too much for Doug so he went Phi-Sci. 
Second class year mellowed Mitch since be 
ended up living with two Offshore "sailor 
baggers". His only two happiness' were eating 
and sleeping, both of which be performed with 
great expertise. He still has the rack bums 
from this era. First class year Mitch turned 
into a miracle worker ■ bow could he get a 3.1 
and not study an hour. He again enjoyed bis 
Friday nights but this time it was either at the 
"Mustang Ranch" or Frans. He started to 
work on his "SWO physique" early showing 
his enthusiasm forgetting into the Fleet Doug

Murphy's Mustangs were born. A trip to the

Murph 's state finals with St. Francis. 

Despite bis cross-country escapades with 
Greg, trips to Chi-town, and other adventures 
with Karen, Brian managed to walk the

Moons strolled into Canoe U. in 1980 
dragging his high school Knockout, Lvri. 
Being from Waldorf and having his girl's 
family as a sponsor kept his SEE factor high 
while we were all dating Rosey. Being a cocky 
dude he boxed in the plebe smoker and won 
and also got his letter plebe year in 150 FB. 
His athletic career ended as a 2nd team 
AU-American D-Back for the 150s. I forgot his 
Z star with oak leaf clusters. 3/c cruise he 
traveled all around the Med. and due to his 
love for Lori denied himself many earthly 
pleasures only to get dumped at the end of 
3/c vear. We celebrated during June week with 
a V5 of Smirnoff & O. J. Being a squared away 
guy he broke all the rules and didn't get 
caught until the end of 2/c year. His car at 
St. John 9 began his EMBC career His next 
exploit? You guessed it. he went black. Yes, 
he went WUBA. And I've had an extra 
roommate 1/c year. But Ruthfu is pretty 
gouge, he says. He leaves Annapolis to the

Soon after arriving he found out that that 
despite what the catalog said this was not the 
world's only co-educational monastary and it 
was possible to go here and stili have a good 
time. Setting out on a four year attempt to 
prove this. Tom was always the first into any 
rumble and the first out on any recon. Morty 
also met his fair share of girls, unfortunately 
if he was destined to meet five girls in five 
weeks, he met five the first week and didn't 
even see another one for five more. Always 
more motivated than most mids, Mort was a 
Cheerleader for two years, besides giving him 
the opportunity to man-handle the opposite 
sex. he had the opportunity to travel to exotic 
places for the games including Memphis, 
Tenn. for the Liberty Bowl. The Marines are

Doc started off at this old school with the 
highest contacts of all. the Supe was his 
sponsor, and he ended up . . . (it's a long 
story!). Doc's plebe year was one of the more 
interesting cases. The pranks pulled on him 
by two upperclass (Chuck & Virg) are truly 
classics. There are too many to mention and 
they might even embarrass him so we will 
spare him, this time. Another amazing thing 
about Doc was his athletic ability. This kid 
was tremendous in the pool & on the track, 
those situps gave him a tough time also. One 
thing that he was amazing at was soccer. He 
made the varsity soccer team plebe year, but 
had to quit. When Doc arrived here plebe year 
be was pretty innocent, but then his 
roommates taught him the ways of the world. 
Doc will never be the same again The terrible 
trio will get together again some day and 
Moons (Jim) and Rans (Tom) will teach Doc 
a few more things, or maybe Doc will give 
them a story or two. maybe even some good 
ideas! You did well Se-Hun. Good luck to you

Sharon came to conquer the NavaJ Academy 
from the sticks of Pennsylvania. Having found 
that studies were not difficult she set her 
sights on the net. Realizing that her skills were 
better utihzed behind the scene, she traded in 
the volleyball for folded nets, statistics, and 
dirty laundry. First class year we found the 
real Sharon when, during the day she was a 
mild mannered Mid, and while at night 
swapping "Wuba" for jeans she became a 
radical at American V. while the rest of us 
struggled to get a B.S. Sharon decided to work 
on both her B.S. and MA. at the same time. 
Who ever said Marines had to be dumb didn 't 
know Sharon bad chosen the Corps. 
Academics, volleyball, and Marines were not 
the only things on Sharon s mind. She was not 
without charm for the opposite sex when she 
easily captivated the heart of a West Pointer

Rob sailed into Annapolis with three goals 
in mind: to become an engineer, to excel on 
the Varsity Offshore Sailing Team, and to fly 
Na^y. He achieved all of these goals and even 
received an added bonus by the name of Kate. 
Mother Rabuse began plebe year professional- 
ly and by the book, however he soon learned 
the ways of deviance by eating lobster after 
taps with some of bis firstie sailmg friends. 
This act earned him a black "N" and a 
membership in the early morning breakfast 
club. On the sailing team, Rob's prowess was 
unmatched. How many collisions and man 
overboards did you have junior year? I forget. 
Rob's misfortune even extended on land, as he 
became a member of the Navy driving team 
by crashing his 280-ZX (way to go Sheik of 
Arabic). As first class year rolled around R. 
B. REALL Y began to mellow out and 
concentrate on two things: sailing and 
partying. He was host of the "Mustang Ranch" 
which was located across the river and 
entertained many mids with it's supply of 
Molsons. Rob is a classy guy in all aspects, 
from the beer he drinks to the cigars he 
smokes. Those H. Vpmann s added something 
special to our great American "tokeouts ". Rob 
has been successful in all his endeavors and 
knows how to have fun along the way. Navy 
air has gained a great man in Rob. Good luck 
in all you do'. 


Thomas S. Ransom

Tom plans on heading to Newport upon 
graduation. This may be a wise decision 
considering his initial exploits with naval 
aircraft. Rans was a part of the ill-fated 
expedition to move the F-4 plebe year. 

Youngster year be graduated to throwing 
toothpaste bombs into Main-0. The true killer 
of that prank came when be called back posing 
as a Lt. to get the damage report. 

Tom majored in Oceanography and alth- 
ough had us worried on a few occasions 
managed to pull through quite nicely. Tom 
mav still be a little confused however, as to 
the primary use of the desk: poker table or 
dance floor? 

Rans also had his share of adventures with 
the babes. The end of second class year saw 
him juggling four women simultaneously. One 
or two of whom may still be weeping. 

Tom has left bis trail on the highway of 
Annapolis in blood. A motorcycle accident 2/c 
year left him bandaged for quite a while. As 
if that wasn't enough first class year he was 
in the Thompson machine when it went down 
in all of its glory one Monday night. 

Take care Tom. hope you can steer your

Summer. He not only battled the first class 
but also his roommate (who to him was a 
llrstie.l His Second Set squad leader had a 
favorite phrase for Dave, "Get with the 
program Mr Schmode!" 

In spite of his precarious start at the Naval 
Academy. Dave made great strides during 
Plebe year Most notable was Dave's help with 
our entire class in computers (Doc will forever 
be in debt to him)- When Dave wasn't busy 
helping someone in their homework or taking 
their watch because they bad eaten too much, 
be was either coaching the first class on how 
to play Volleyball or in the famous "Schmode 
Mode" (with a long o in Schmode). As Dave 
flew into Youngster year, be became totally 
involved in Volleyball. Statics, and Strength 
of Materials the was the only guy I knew who 
could play golf the day before a Strengths final 
and still ace the thing). 

The best thing we can say about Second 
class year is that Dave survived it. As a firstie. 
The Schmode became the best training officer 
4th Company will ever know — the Class of 
'87 will always have a special place in their 
hearts for Dave - that is, Mr Schmode With 
a little luck Dave made it through first 
semester and became an air dale instead of a

Somehow be managed to sur\ive the likes of

In an ever continuing program to improve

behind to bead east. He wanted a more 
exciting social life. Annapolis and West Point 
immediately came to mind, but the Woops lost 
out. Bob did the impossible during his stay 
here. Using the "Tizmo efficiency factor" 
(minimum input for maximum output), he 
disproved the theory, "You can't be a mid and 
have fun too. " Bob got good grades in a tough 
major, although he couldn't do the homework, 
three stripes and became a physical biomass 
in a variety of sports Not one to blow things 
off, he worked hard at haiing fun too. Bob was 
always out of control (o^c) He even managed

His rebel persistence manifested itself as he 
battled everything from, "The Lingus" to

a master of finesse, but rather he has that good

Mark has bad all kinds of roommates, such

However he really went off the deep end when 
he became a member of the "Vegetable

grew with amazing speed and strength (similar 
to a slug) for three semesters, while oblivious 
of the outside world. Equally so. the outside 
world remained oblivious of the Veg. Patch. 
Somewhat ignorant of the regs. the "Garden" 
was always a source of fun, humor, and

pursued his true love-sailing. Sorry Buffie.

John was subject to much abuse by teammates 
on account of his usually "reliable i"^)" engines 
that most of the Academies' boats were 
erroneously equiped with. Obviously not too 
slandered since he was given his own 
command senior year. In the halls, his name 
changed to Westergeek as his QPR will justify- 
As with most mids. Beke earned his varsity

consistency. There was never a night that 
Beke was up past 12 despite the efforts of such

Abbey swept through USNA o 
tide. He never settled for second best in 
anything. Perhaps it was the southern 
aristocrat in John that pushed him to success; 
in any event 3.9 was not part of his vocabulary. 

The hard work took its toll, however since 
no amount of desserts or SusticaJ could add 
a single ounce to his 130 pound bulk. An 
unquestioned champion at hide-and-seek 
when flag poles or street lamps were abundant. 
John prefered the sports of the elite - squash 

Abbey observed all the niceties of dress and 
manners. His festive wardrobe with a little 
help from the Bavarian Motor Works 
attracted numerous nice girls - perhaps a little 
too nice. Better try lOO^r Dacron and a 
Plymouth Valiant. 

John's forthrightness and outspoken man-

certainly benefit from his commitment and

at the Naval Academy he has had a great 
many succeaaes. Academically, Steve easily 
stands near the top of our class. Additionally, 
Steve has often been recognized for his 
dedication to duty and thorough profession- 
alism. Steve's efforts were recognized first 
class year by his being selected as Brigade 
Drill Officer for the entire year 

Although Steve did dedicate himself to 
school work and bis military duties during the 
week, he firmly believed in the adage of "work 
hard and play hard. " When Steve did decide 
it was time to play he could almost always be 
found wheeling through the mud in Bowie, his 
home away from home. Steve's favorite toys 
for playing in the mud included an enormous 
red Ford 4X4 and an uncontrollable Honda 
MX bike. After a grueling day of slinging the 
mud Steve always found that a large dose of 
thoee sweet "M&M'a" were just what he 
needed to revitalize himself 

Now that our stay at the Academy is rapidly 
coming to a close, I must thank Steve for being 
a great friend to myself and everyone else in 
the company.

English, Supply Corps 

Jim made everyone aware that he was at 
USNA to stay from day one with those long, 
bellowing -GO NAVY SIR's" that echoed in 
every corner of the third wing Many people 
came to know Jim anyway because he dipped 
his hands into a variety of activities around 
school and also delved into a world that is 
beyond the average Mid's conception. But Jim 
was no a verage person . Ho w could you 
consider someone who drives through the 
crowded streets of Baltimore 
4-wheel drive pickup (comple 
flag) immaculately dressed 
blaring Beethoven from a i 
previously known only honkey-tonk music. 

One could say that Jim's interest in females 
were as diversified as his other interests. He 
became well educated on both the good and 
bad sides of women and learned some lessons 
he will never forget, including how to get a 
good deal on a diamond. After near disaster 
With the ' 'La ura Log ' ' and those m uch 
anticipated trips to Richmond to see the wife 
and kids, Jim still has a healthy outlook 
toward women. 

Always quick to make a firm decision, Jim 
has changed his service selection al least six 
times. He became convinced that Supply 
Corps was the way for him after his excursion 
to the Far East during First Class summer. He 
brought back a vast amount of goods and, 
along with the boys from the "Cripoli", he 
tasted the spices of a far-off world. 

The only limits you face will be those you 
set for yourself Good Luck. Jim.

Joe swam through the gates of USNA from 
a place called Coraopolis, Pa. He quickly got 
the hang of the place. Who else would refer 
to plebe summer as a "summer camp for 18 
yr. olds". He was looking forward to a 
Chemistry degree when somebody talked him 
into Mech- Eng. We became partners in crime 
second semester 4/c year. We went for a 
Sunday drive in the yard, and who could forget 
the Rush concert? Being the true friend he is 
he kept my hands full during spring break that 
year. His troubles began as he yearned for 
female companionship. He spent youngster 
cruise searching, in vain, for that special 
someone. He did set a new record, though, for 
the most strikeouts in one night. His prayers 
were answered at army, youngster year. She 
was tall, blonde, had long legs, and wore tight 
red pants. Right Clay to'^ Missy and the Mech. 
Eng. Dept. took their toll as his grades fell. 
He was further traumatized as his family 
moved to New Jersey (exit 4). The medical 
dept. did not help much as they played with 
his flying status. AM stories have a happy 
ending this is no exception. By service 
selection the nuts down in medical gave him 
a thumbs up. He now looks forward to 
terrorizing the skies. They say the skies are 
the limit, but Joe will go farther than that.

brushing off an early 75-2 drinking offense, 
Coucs quickly became a mainstay of Academy 
party life. From gi\'ing his fellow plebes 
carry-on during plebe summer, to "decorat- 
ing" borrowed dinner jackets, to stealing his 
roommate's dates. Claude was always one to 
look out for his buddies. 

Girls were never a problem for Coucs. After 
plebe loves, he soon developed the Dahlgren 
"handshake" and sprint. Quick to notice a 
lonesome female. Coucs earned the title of 
"The 7-2 Octopus". It's OK though, she still 
thinks you're cute. By the way. how many 
beers does it take to make that "older 
Woman" at the MCRD attractive? 

Claude had a little trouble with regulations. 
He thought the Admin Conduct Book was a 
list of fun things one had to complete to 
graduate. It's a good thing he never staved 
more than one year in the same room because 
one roof can only support so many emptv 
bottles. Having already been a rugby player in 
mind, he joined "The Boys" his second class 

Coucs is a lover of institutes and decided to 
enter the institute of marriage, whatever that 
is. right after graduation. From there he will

Shuffling in from the ice box of the world 
(Buffalo). Pete Katmandu Dallman came to 
the Naval Academy for the "challange" of it 
all. But after a few weeks he realized that 
plebe summer was not exactly what he had in 
mind. During plebe year Pete quickly 
mastered the technique of acrobatically 
leaping from the upper bunk with grace and 
ease, 'you gotta believe me Rob", but he 
specialized in doing neat tricks with cups of 
hot chocolate Ihave you ever tried drinking a 
whole cup through the top of your head ■ Pete 
has). Love has not been overly nice to the 
Katman. just ask Cheryl And who could 
forget Kim the mud engineer destined to 
become yet another tumbleweed doomed to 
remain in Texas. He claims he is "playing the 
field" but sometimes he lets the field play him! 
Being an engineer has taken its toll on Pete. 
for who in his right mind would make a bet 
on who would get the lower QPR - only the 
boys from the Big Apple I guess! As one of 
the first members of the Partial Credit 
Engineers Society, it soon became evident that 
with midnight came the saying, "if I don't 
know it now I never will, ZZZ!" Truly the best 
friend a person could have, and through all the 
ups and downs (from curbs that jump into the 
middle of the road and inflict flat tires, to 
putting up with a thick headed Italian). Pete

After spending a year in the Marine Corps, 
Bob decided to take a five year vacation at 
none other than NAPS and USNA. Always a 
quiet person. Bob went virtually unnoticed our 
entire plebe year — a subject be is vaguely 
familiar mth. A hard-core Electrical Engineer 
from the very beginning, he endured this 
demanding curriculum until first semester 
Youngster year. Terrified at the thought of 
getting less than 10 hours of sleep every night. 
Bob wasted no time becoming a Mecb-E. This 
proved to be a wise move, but it soon occurred 
to him that he could make an even wiser move 
— from Mech-E to GE. The rack, however, 
was not "Blue-back's" only pastime: he had 
been ce ugh t on occasion in a state of 
unconsciousness at bis desk chair — too 
exhausted tc> remove his reefer and cover. Our 
narcoleptic was also once discovered "getting 
horizontal" on top of his desk in order to avoid 
messing up his rack before class. Aside from 
sleep. Bob's only other love is Taco Bell. It 
was not uncommon for our hero to make three 
taco runs in a single week. Bob's charisma, 
sharp wit, and uncanny knack for having a

Clayton D. Saunders 


Frankfort, Illinois 

Political Science, Surface Line 

Clayton arrived at the steps of Mother B. 
with expectations of grandeur, a grin on his 
face, numerous freckles and. you guessed it, 
red hair! (How about those Mid-western 
boys?) In a short time he became "Richie" to 
those of us who will never forget those "Happy 
Days" in high school. 

Richie gave up the "normal" college life of 
SMU to become an engineer at good old 
U.S.N.A. But. as fate would have it. Mother 
B. and the Board Itbose 'all powerful' 
advisors) felt that be was destined to be a 
"political scientist" Richie enthusiastically 
accepted this gift of fate and his career at the 
Academy was to follow the path of the 
infamous "Bull Major". "Clayton, aren't you 
studying tonight?" "Is Clayton in the 
wardroom AGAIN!?" "Clayton will you type 
my paper!?" 

Clayton bad dominated many things while 
at U.S.N.A. (the pistol team, the backgammon 
board, the company wardroom, Debbie), but 
be wasn't actually known for bis dominance. 
Clayton ("Richie", "Douglas", "H. D") was 
known for his easy-going, care-free attitude. 
Those of us who were fortunate enough to 
really know him will never forget him. Good 
Luck in the fleet. I hope those grey boats keep 
you happy!

Raul came to the banks of the Severn from 
the Arizona desert. Fueled with Mexican food, 
tequila, fast cars, memories of roller coaster 
bill and nice dry weather, he charged headlong 
into plebe year. He cheerfully 3ur\'ived the 
rigors of that year (and Batchelor's boys) with 
a great attitude and a big grin Spring break 
saw him really work on his technique, dee dum 
dee dum. but also didn 't agree with him that 
final morning. As we moved into youngster 
year Raul began his major, aerospace, which 
he will, I am happy to say, complete. Later in 
the year he shifted focus to American 
University and his wife to be. However, he still 
had time for his friends many good times were 
had by all, never to be forgotten. Take for 
example those wild parties, in Kit 's words, up 
at Tammy's. And who can forget the great 
times with USMC. Thank you but he'll pass.

Arriving induction day as your typical 
All-American Boy, Brock was slowly in- 
troduced and transposed into "one of the

Academy . , , Road trips to Pitt, and Penn 
State, cruising the strip of Va. Beach and even 
the ultimate of staying overnight at a U.C.L.A. 

School work was something unknown to this 
high school valedictorian. More time was spent 
styling hair than studying EE. However Brock 
did manage to squeeze in a few hours before 
finals to maintain the 3.00 mark. 

Unlike many of his peers. Brock's high 
morals remained with him throughout his 4 
years. Living by the phrase. "Loyal to one. fun 
with none". Brock was able to keep himself 
away from the poison apple, while at the same

some of us may never see him again. So once

and ended up at some military institution. 
Before he knew it, he was told his hair was 
too long, he weighed too much, and he could 
not see girls any more. Well. Moose was not 
one to let minor things get him down. Slowly 
but surely his hair grew back and he trimmed 
down to a low percentage of body fat Next 
for the girls While at the Academy. Moose 
successfully met the perfect girl for him at 
least ten times. When he wasn't fighting off 
girls, he was fighting off hockey pucks flying 
at him. or having fun at parties while drinking 
more beer than most people will ever see. Dan 
was a great friend and went to great lengths 
to keep others out of trouble, but he had his 
own trouble avoiding speeding tickets and 
restrictions for such serious offenses as a dirty 
room. While a DJ on WRNV. Moose featured 
Lionel Richie songs which lost the respect of 
bis roommate but earned several female fans 
in Annapolis. As Dan moves on to ser\ice in 
the Marine Corps, many people who know him

and especially his friendship, and to some he 
was more like a brother than a friend.

not a term for a group. Plebe year began in 
a 4-man room with a Leb, a Moose and Mickey 
Mouse. Steve's grades were higher than the 
other 3 put together and he took up one of 
USNA's toughest majors; Aero Big Steve's 
grades never dipped below 3.0, a feat few can 
claim- Big Steve was not an egghead, as he 
enjoved wine, women and if you can call that 
stuff he listened to song, as much, and 
sometimes more than, anyone else. His years 
at VSNA were truly blessed with interesting 
adventures, like the trip to Trinity 3/c year (I 
still have the traffic tickets). Army-Navy 1982 
and his time as a POM (Prisoner of Moss). 
Big Steve was popular on the girl's school

always went only for the cheap beer, he always 
seemed to return with a phone number even 
when he didn 't have his goggles on The most

Mike came to the Boat School prepared for 
almost anything Plebe Summer had to offer. 
He brought with him his fleet of toy boats, a 
rubber duck, a rubber chicken, and a rubber 
raft. Then, and now, he has shown a certain 
zaniness and enjoyment of life which has 
occasionally caught up with him. Such 
moments included ripping his leg up while 
running into a metal bench or breaking his 
shoulder while playing touch football. Mike's 
most engrossing hobby has been that of taking 
pictures, pictures, and more pictures. He was 
seen a t various times out on green bea ch 
capturing the sunset or in Mahan clocktower 
during a snowstorm looking for the right shot. 
He successfully transmitted this passion for 
pictures to his Polish roommate. Mike has had 
to perpetually climb the steep hill of 
academics to achieve the summit of passing 
grades. It has been a tough journey but in the 
end a successful one. The Fleet benefits by 
gaining an individual who knows what it is to

During bis first academic year. Glenn was one 
of the few midshipmen to be allowed to choose 
General Engineering as his original major. 
Youngster cruise saw Glenn touring the East

Youngster year was uneventful until Dead 
Week, when Glenn was offered an opportunity 
to move up to the Physical Science major. The 
beginning of second class year found our hero 
road-tripping to Wildwood, NJ for long- 
weekend partying This was facilitated after 
Christmas break by the introduction of a ten 
year old, hundred thousand mile Pinto with

Paris or Cyprus waiting for a plane, Dano 
sought the girl of his dreams. He started out 
in Beirut and even found an angel in the 
States, but now he stands on the shores of 
Tripoli with his new and maybe final find 
First class year found our hero safe with his

His summer cruise at Camp Pendleton 
convinced him firmly that surface line was

he'll find some happiness on the grey ships.

Randy came to the Naval Academy from 
Phoenii, Arizona. He lucked out and got in 
Cbi's aquad and was immediately introduced 
to the fine leadership opportunities available. 
Daring Plebe Summer Randy amazed and 
awed both his clasamates and the firsties with 
his amazing grasp of Morse code. This was due 
of course to his lifetime interest in Ham Radio. 
Randy was to eventually join and help lead the 
Academy Ham Radio Club. He was also very 
involved with WRNV. Plebe year was a hard 
time for us all — but for Randy ~~ well, it 
seemed to us that it had affected him more 
than most. Or maybe he just always had a 
bizarre personality. When Randy returned 
from Youngster Cruise he was the proud 
wearer of Silver Dolphins. Sure. I'd give up 
liberty in Italy to stay on a submarine and 
study — not. But it was worthwhile since be 
was accepted to the nuclear power program 
and has chosen submarines. Youngster and 
Second Class year saw Randy study and sweat 
bis EE major. And many, many late nights. 
But he has done well in "one of the Academy's 
toughest majors. " Along the way he amassed 
the largest stereo system in Sixth Company. 
Randy led a squad of plebes around during the 
summer. When be returned in the fall he drove 
back in a brand new sportscar ( Thanks, 
Grandma), to become the First Regimental 
Sub-Commander aka MIDN Blooddrive. The 
tail-gator after the Air Force game will long 
be remembered — Randy met his "true love. " 
How often do you call up your girlfriend and 
have your Company Officer answer the phone? 
Randy will always be remembered for his — 
unique — personality. And his antics. Not to 
mention his stupid straw hat. Good luck in the 
Submarine navy, Randy, from all of your 
friends. We'll miss you, but we know we'll

Haddon Heights, New Jersey 

English, Surface Line 

Sean Hilferty came to USNA from South 
Jersey via NAI*S four years ago. bringing to 
this venerable institution the makings of a 
truly . . . unique future officer. Unique is the 
only truthful term one could apply to him 
because be is indeed . . . different. You see, 
Sean is an artist. But there are a lot of starving 
artists, actors, and musicians out there, so for 
the meantime he'll be sidetracked in the Navy 
while pursuing art, acting, and playing guitar. 

These are by far not the only interests in 
Sean 's life at USNA. There 's always his major, 
English, in which he's excelled — mainly 
because he's good with a shovel. He began as 
an aero major and had aspirations to be a 
pilot, but then be saw the Ught and was 
SAVED by switching to the humanities and 
a career track in surface line. Ah, but bis alter 
ego in The Log, Carl Pursor/Darior. lives his 
fantasies vicariously. "Darior" began as a 
quick-sketch comic strip and ended as a major 
endeavor occupying entire weeks. Sean never 
did do much homework and he didn't sleep 
a whole lot either. 

Those weekends Sean didn't spend laying 
out The Log or drawing be occupied by 
finding various and sundry Oriental women, 
for whom he has a particularly soft spot in his 
head. Being as he 's beaded for the Pacific for 
his first tour, we may just never see hinj again 
when be finally gets to the Far East If they 
play reruns of Star Trek in Japan, he'll have

John established the tenor of his stay at 
USNA early on — by volunteering to show us 
how to brace-up at the beginning of Plebe 
summer. He planned to double-major in EE 
and Econ. We laughed. He was professional, 
though; the second best source of info on 
Naval hardware and the acknowledged expert 
on foreign and domestic affairs. Thus EE gave 
way to Poll Sci and Jorgy had a goal: world 
domination. This dream decreased in scale 
and he eventually decided on Deputy Director 
of the CIA. He had to settle for Company 

One of his favorite bobbies was opening 
himself up for slams — and we took advantage 
of it. His "0.3 mm pencil" will be long 
remembered by all those who knew of it. First 
Class year found John with a car that only 
made an occasional trip across the river for a 
case of Mountain Dew. Not one to smoke, 
drink, dip, chew or socialize, he wondered 
about his underwhelming success with women. 
Nonetheless, San Diego should be a good time 
for him. The first words out of his mouth as 
he meets the CO of his Spruance will 
undoubtedly be, "Well sir, this is bow I think 
we should run things ..."

had learned how to let himself go and have

forget the raging Polock during Plebe Summer 
in which Pat marched 6th Platoon into 4th 
place, lost his voice "talking" to Plebes and

on everyone else because he speaks computer 
fluently. Being a computer god has had its 
advantages, since Todd bas enjoyed more 
access to NATS than most of the people who

allowed him to annoy the public, too. Just 
kidding — he can usually carry a tune without 
changing keys more than twice. Todd's also 
been a fencer these last four years with a good 
record in foil. Perhaps someday he'll discover 
a good weapon like epee. 

Todd also discovered lasciviousness while at 
the Academy- But alas, his bachelor days 
appear to be ended and soon he'll have a ring 
through bis nose- Farewell to bachelorhood 
and fare thee well under the sea. 


Matthew M. Marron 

Matt Sioux Falls South Dakota 

Ocean Engineering - Nuclear 


While at USNA. Matt's personal motto bas 
been one with the class' - Deatinatus Excello. 
Matt's academic excellence was rewarded by 
his successful! design and construction of a 
turbine, his acceptance into Tau Beta Pi. and 
his commission into the Nuclear naiT- His 
outstanding leadership skills were also 
reflected in his D and B command and his 
Company CAO duties. 

Matt also seemed always to excel in good 
times. He got an excellent start with "Sir, You 
need a haircut"! This was only the beginning 
- Matt's four years continued with good times 
like: flying back from Towson: flats in D.C: 
an old friend in Tennessee; Muldoon's 
Rent-a-Car: Skiing at Killington; Powder 
Ridge. Leaky bodega bag: Boston Halloween; 
"Get your *ff! in gear"! a Sop tradition. 
Blondie; D & B swimming party, Viliiage 
Idiots: Daa-ditDaDaDaDaa Daaa-ditDa- 

Good luck in subs - we're sure you'll 
continue to excel in every way.

Mathematics, Navy Pilot 

Marty came to us from high tn the rockies 
via NAPS. His stay at the academy has been 
an interesting one, filled with many misadven- 
tures. We can 't be good all of the time, now 

Plebe year found Mike doing a variety of 
things: from getting caught water- ballooning 
Goat Court, to falling asleep with a future 
Deputy Brigade Commander on a hotel bed 
after the Army game. We know, Mike, nothing 
happened . . . 

Youngster year. Marty plunged forward into 
Systems Engineering. However, he soon found 
it to be too much like work, so he took the 
easy way out, and went Math instead. 

Second class year. Mike moved into a 3-man 
room equipped with the essentials: a toaster 
oven and a popcorn popper. We also found 
Mike locked in a semi-romantic death-grip 
with a lamprey eel named Addie. She had her 
hooks into him so deeply that's doubtful he'U 
ever get them out 

Many great landmarks in the life of "The 
Mex " were passed during firstie year. Amy: he 
met her on cruise, fell in love, talked about 
her constantly, got engaged at Christmas, and 
married her after graduation. The only 
drawback to this relationship was that she 
taught him to snore, something his roommate 
didn't appreciate. Another of his dreams, 
flying, was also realized. Now it 's off to P-cola 
to learn how to beat Ivan in the air. Good luck 
in the future, Mike, in whatever you do! 

Michael Joseph Massee 


Tucson, Arizona 

History. NFO 

Mike abandoned the fun and sun of Tucson, 
Arizona m order to excel at the Naval 
Academy He completed the academic re- 
quirements of bis history major in three and 
a half years, allowing him to commence work 
on a Master's Degree at the University of 
Maryland If all goes as well there as it did 
here. he'U be able to earn his M.A. before he 
reports to Pensacola in January. Undaunted 
by missing one letter on the eye examination. 
Mike chose an NFO billet to stay mth the 
aviation community. 

Mike's interests and involvements in the 
brigade have varied widely from D&B to 
VTNA to being vice-president of Phi Alpha 
Theta, the history honor society Mike bas 
achieved some degree of fluency in Spanish as 
a result of seven semesters of Spanish and 
participation in a foreign exchange cruise to 
Mexico. Despite almost being thrown in jail by 
the Mexican police for not having a passport, 
Mike plans to visit Mexico again this summer 
— this time with a passport. We all know Mike 
really wanted to attend the University of 
Arizona, but the closest Mike could get was 
by participating in their summer seminar at 
the University of Guadalajara. 

Buena suerte. Mike. Think of me on those 
days when the sky seems to go on forever, 
knowing I haven't seen it for the past sixty

Cinnaminson, New Jersey 
Oceanography, Surface Nuke 

Pete was the one ordered not to sweat 
during Plebe summer. That didn 't stop him. 
physically or psychologically. He never smiled 
in front of his firsties — a trend that stuck 
with him much of his USNA career as he 
began to take himself more and more 
seriously. When be realized that he had a shot 
at stars, he hit the books harder than ever 
When Company Commander came within his 
reach, he tried his hardest to shine brightest. 
And if the thought of CNO ever enters his 
head, watch out! 

But life wasn't all books and Brasso for 
Pete. He had a few diversions. One at home, 
though, fell thru during Plebe year. Youngster 
year found him with a new hobby, which 
turned out to be a cool mistake. But after a 
rather dull year, Pete turned to a new 
from second class year — which 
him his three stripes. But Urchin 
to pursue the matter, and the rest 
went smoothly, 
le to work harder than necessary 
in order to be better than everyone else, Pete 
took the ultimate challenge and went Surface 
Nuke. If he keeps plugging like he is now. he'll 
be either CO of a CGN or dead of exhaustion 
in eighteen years.

He came to us from the heart of "God's 
Country" with a lacrosse stick in one hand and 
a sheep in the other. He spoke to us with 
phrases like "Oh, say it though, you wouldn't 
like to be me," and "I didn't just hit a 
hemmie. " It took another person from "the 
island" to even come close to a translation 

Ken made his mark at USNA on the lacrosse 
team. Startmg out at the bottom and 
eventually achieving fame and fortune by the 
spring of his junior year. His picture was 
plastered all over lacrosse paraphernalia from 
calendars to yearbooks until his name 
eventually became a household word. 

Ken's prowess on the lacrosse field has been 
exceeded only by his skill with a beer bong. 
The big question in everybody's mind is, what 
will he do after graduation'^ A.) Go to SWOS 
school in Newport. B.) Go to Europe in search 
of sheep, or C.) Hack her to death with a 
kitchen knife. Well Ken. as "fric and frac" 
according to some, we've been through thick

following seas. I hope you don't forget what 
to do with your trash can when the enemy is

Trevor A. Mclntyre 


Palo Alto, California 

Physical Science, Naval Flight 


Trevor came to USNA from one bay (S.F.) 
to another. Plebe summer saw Trevor's squad 
leader (Lil) hemming up his pants on I-day. 
Plebe year was uneventful save for his flaring 
temper and his receiving a six pack of beer in 
the mail from his girlfriend. Plebe year also 
saw the start of his illustrious crew career 
which led to his stroking the team to a 
national championship second class year. The 
end of plebe year found Trevor sucking face 
with Tricky Vicky after a party. He claims to 
have been drunk but we all know his 
attraction to women in uniform. 

Youngster year saw Trevor go through two 
roommates. He started his first affair with a 
girl bigger than a breadbox and his Dahlgren 
ventures included kissing snails. Mechanical 
Engineering presented no major problems 
until second class year when he found that it 
wasn't challenging his intellect to its fullest so 
he decided to move up to Physical Science. 

First class year found Trevor accomplishing 
many milestones, he quit the crew team when 
he found that he wasn't enjoying it. Who 
enjoys self abuse anyway? A prospective 
company sub-commander. Trevor found his 
quest for stripes foiled. The beginning of 
second semester found Trevor's weekends 
occupied by restriction and second cl^s 
privileges. Service selection night saw the 
NFO billets rapidly disappearing but the force 
was with him and he got the last one by the 
hair on his chinny chin chin. 

Good luck in life and cover your six.

The "Moose" went on the loose here at

watering hole in Newport. Sir Blackington had 
many conquests during his stay, many of 
which be can't remember and others he mav 
not want to This half of the Knit-Wit

Ocean City to the sidewalks of Fran Mesora's. 
However, all was not work for Tom here at 
the boat school. He spent many a winter day 
oyster diving, water skiing and surfing. When 
spring rolls around Tom's motto is "Batt Lax 
is where it's at. " Many women have come to 
know the "moose", but a special southern belle 
of Admiral descent seems to have tickled his 
fancy The Big Bad "Woor' is off to Athens,

When researchers found Tom in the Idaho

was discovered by a desperate Idaho Blue and

bears sometimes have better dispositions than 
some firsties. Shields ring a bell Tom"^ Ha\ing 
been raised by bears. Tom was naturally 
accustomed to hibernation- 3 formations a day 
quickly disrupted his routine, but he did 
manage to sleep through about 65 "7 of the 
Xaval Academy experience. 

Tom was never one to worry about 
homework when he could be steeping. His 
academic life was not a total breeze He ended 
up fulfilling his desire to go general at the 
Naval Academy's request. Tom learned 
economics first hand when it came time to buy 
a car. Evil and wicked thoughts of sports cars 
were not allowed in his mind. I don't think 
they had a blue Ford Escort in mmd when 
they developed Blue Thunder And let's not 
forget the Ring Dance. Being from Dixie.

In coming to USNA. Randy turned bis back 
on the ivy covered walls of Harvard. A decision 
he thought about more than once in the past 
four years. The better apart of Randy's first 
two years at the Academy were spent trying 
to decide which college he would attend after 
youngster year. But after much thought he 
decided he couldn't leave all his friends and 
so he stayed. Down deep we all knew he would. 

Randy's first love in life is following sports. 
Especially the Cowboys and VNC basketball. 
Randy could be seen spending many a study 
hour in the wardroom pursuing this interest. 
And if there were no sports on TV he might 
just decide to do a little studying to pass the 

Weekends were Randy's own time, and few 
were spent around USNA. If he wasn't home 
visiting his girlfriend, he was out getting 
rowdy with the boys from sixth company. 

Randy is indeed a true friend. One thing he 
has been heard to say on more than one 
occasion is that when he leaves here he won't 
miss the Academy so much as he will his 
friends. Well, that goes double for all of us. 
Good luck on the seven seas and please keep

managed one of the most low keyed "plebe

I earned him the playful name of "Urchin." 
The sailing team and the love for punk rock 
followed soon thereafter. Youngster year 
found Eric leading us all in our rebellious lives 
as tenants of "Youngster Alley " Higher 
grades. Dahlgren, late nights goofing off. loud 
stereos, and obnoxious writing on the 
youngster chalk board were all standards. 
What fun we had! By 2/C year, the plebes 
found a new friend affectionately known as 
Mr. Wills... "Sir'" Actually, the plebes feared 
and respected him at the same time; it was 
the firsties who were terrified of him He had 
the guts to stand up to anyone and was always 
ready to make a stand on anything. He became

Big Daddy 
Santa Ana, California 
English, Submarines 

Scott came to the Naval Academy an 
innocent Southern California beach burn and 
quickly learned that he was not destined to 
adjust to civilized eastern ways. Plebe year was 
a sobering time for Scott (in fact, he seemed 
to spend a lot of time sobering) and in bis role 
as the Big Daddy, he soon became a 7th 
company institution. 

Big Daddy will always be remembered as 
being a great-humored {if not somewhat 
warped) individual, whose literary talents and 
lack of devotion to studying made his choice 
of English as a major an easy decision. Many 
were the nights when Big Daddy could be 
found behind bis typewriter, pipe in mouth, 
and chuckling to himself Big Daddy was never 
at a loss for ways to entertain his classmates 
and an occasional company officer. His 
fearless ability to mangle his fists on a bedpost 
and his unique taste in interior decorating 
(depending on the availability of a bucket) 
were always good for a laugh. As the Rockhead 
Scott had a fondness for butting heads in 
scrums, against the bottom of a shallow 
swimming pool, or through night club walls. 
Yet for some reason this somewhat neanderth- 
al appearing rugger always seemed to be 
fostering new and beautiful relationships with 
some very fine looking young ladies. Alas, it 
appears as though Big Daddy must finally 
settle down. Service selection found him 
joining the ranks of the few, the proud, the 
Nuclear Power English Majors. It's bard to 
believe that our steely-eyed, blood-n-guts, 
lady killing Rockhead is destined to be a

Oceanography, Nuclear Power 


Four years ago. George unplugged his 
guitars, left Georgia behind, and headed North 
to find civilization. By some freak accident, he 
ended up at USNA . Ha \ing attended a 
military high school. George appeared des- 
tined for big stripes. Fortunately, the inspiring 
examples of Big Bird and the Rudder 
convinced him that aptitude and rank had an 
inverse relationship at USNA. and bis 
priorities changed. His goal now became that 
he would spend the next three years improving 
his guitar technique and waiting for gradua- 
tion. His original goal of medical school was 
torpedoed by the consistent C^"'*) Administra- 
tion policy about medical school, and though 
he loved spending every Saturday night nith 
Organic labs. Chemistry was soon replaced 
with Oceanography. This aspiring bubblehead 
could thereafter be found buying more and 
more bizarre electronic devices for his music 
(?) and the rude noises began emerging from 
his room. A physical wreck. Jorge was 
nevertheless a definite asset to the company 
fieldball team, and was the only player who 
might have enabled us to win a game. Though 
generally an easygoing guy, George would turn 
Crimson with anger whenever some uncul- 
tured buffoon asked him to put on some 
AC/DC. Between the ear-splitting sounds of 
ELF, Yes. and Genesis. George somehow 
warped his mind sufficiently to decide on 
Nuclear power, and the nuclear bonus checks 
were rapidly followed by yet more bizarre 
guitar equipment. Despite one unfortunate 
drive with the shore patrol during Protramid. 
be managed to keep his nose clean during his 
atay at USNA. and the submarine community 
can be sure that they are getting a fine officer 
when George unplugs bis guitars once again to 
bead into the fleet. Good luck in the fleet and 
your music, and save me a ticket!

Mathematics, Surface Line 

The hick came to the boat school from the 
dirt roads of Goidsboro. NC. The "cheeae- 
slice" was always bragging about ACC 
basketball and bis purported beer drinking 
capabilities. Plebe year saw Chess obtaining a 
credit card at Bob Wards and becoming a 
charter member of the Marina drinking club. 
Chess became a notable casualty after one 
drinking spree with "murph" which resulted 
in a four minute mile back to USNA. Chess 
brought his wheels to Annapolis youngster 
year and became the chauffeur for "the boys. " 
However, first class year saw Chess as a 
"passenger" instead of the chauffeur. Chess 
was always up for roadtrips to Hood. Gaucher, 
Dickinson, and any other place which 
promised a good time. The sex kitten will 
never forget being dragged along 1-95 by a 
fired-up Chess after a frat party at theta chi 
Although not noted for picking up women of 
large proportions. Chess was occasionally seen 
with hogs while out with other inffunoua 
porker chasers, "Murph " and "Scrogs- " Chess 
made history by being UA two nights in a row 
while accompanying "Scrogs" on the cannon- 
ball run from Gaucher one night. The Hood 
Dog spent many successful nights at the 
0-Club drinking brews and slam dancing with 
various and sundry bims. Remember tools, the

Steve woke up one morning with a wicked

meant to make his escape from NAPS but 
never got enough clean laundry together for 
the trip After fruitlessly searching for his

for a guy who never owned a textbook and only 
studied five minutes max on the way to class. 
Why study when you have a perfectly good

thing more brutal than his truck was the deer 
that caused htm to roll it. (the deer was

fight dirty unless be was losing. In Ocean

Brett was accidentally conceived in a freak

mistreatment by bis adopted family of 
Aborigines bamboo farmers, he left home to 
join the Naiy- Noticing bis complete lack of 
intellect and table manners, a recruiter 
suggested he try the Naval Academy Brett did 
not really understand, but agreed, anvway. 

He showed up a day late for Induction, of 
course, beginning a notorious 4-year span of 
being late or UA. Brett's unhurried manner 
and seeming obliviousness of reality earned 
him an honored place among the ranks of main 
office restrictees. Many a taps-taker ap- 
preciated his nightly transformation into the 
in\isible man, vanishing for hours into some 
far-off telephone booth to chat with the wife 
I whose name I couldn't spell if I tried). Is 
marriage in the future'' Are dead frogs 

An avid member of the God Squad. Brett 
spent many nights curled up with a Good 
Book, jamming with AC-DC and the Plasma- 
tics or. everyone's favorite, David Meece. 

First class year saw Brett buy a truck and. 
soon thereafter, do a kamikaie routine on a 
certain 0-6's van Oops! (He still swears he 
wasn't driving) Never one to take studying 
seriously, he spent hours reading comic books 
or trying to become Japanese. Somehow he 
still managed to get decent grades in his 
oceanography major. (An occasional all- 
nighter and bottle of No-Doze helped). 

The future will find Brett up to his elbows 
in mud or pork chops. Either Geophysics or 
Supply Corps will be getting a fine naval 
officer. The other will get Brett. (Just 
kidding!) Best of luck to a very good friend, 
and long live Cicada Man!

Glenn is a redneck in the true sense of the

so they pushed him off on NAPS. He arrived 
at the Naval Academy a little less than

came and went, and with a stripe, a 71 
Lemons, and a little more freedom, he 
managed to make a lasting impression on 
Lcdr. Rudd . . . Within 3 months, Mr Gurbs 
managed to redefine the word conduct case, 
with 2 black N's and 60 days restriction . . . 
As a new 2nd class on summer cruise he 
further distinguished himself as one of the 
"boys of 3c". Being a good redneck, Gurbs 
bought a 4x4 truck to compliment his

Just 2 days later, it was off to Hawaii for a

ing a new nickname. Plebe year brought the 
introduction of his hfelong idol. Marshall Rice, 
who bounced himself out of Aero trying to 
enhance John's professional development. 
Swimming brought about an escape from the

educate a young lady on the fine points of life 
at 11:00 on a Wed. with 100 proof coursing 
through his veins. He never saw her again . 
His education continued in this tradition with 
two "almost" dates to Homecoming. A 
memorable moment of youngster year was 
Q-ball's party, where too many beers and crabs 
brought about a uniform conflict where every- 
one came back in civies. Big Daddy and he had 
an argument over who had responsibility for 
the uniforms, which resulted in his narrowly 
escaping a flying fist which hit the rack behind

have anticipated the change to overcome this

Jim basically gave up studying and going to

Massillon, Ohio 

History, Marine Corps 

JJ got up one Cine morning in God's country, 
Ohio, pulled his boots on. hitched up the 
wagon, and set out to take a load of pierogis 
to market. Missing the turnoff to Cuyahoga, 
be ended up in Annapohs where he traded his 
pierogis to an e\ii man dressed sharply in 
green and black who was sent by The Great 
Deceiver (Genl. Barrow). In return JJ signed 
numerous pacts to enter the Few, the Proud 
after a purga tonal stay a r USNA to 
tborougfdy pollute his impressionable young 

Jeffrey was soon crushed into the proper 
mold of an officer candidate through the 
faithful, guiding bands of great leaders of men 
such as Moe man. and the omniscient Man in 
Black. How could he not succeed? Being of 
unsound mind and sound body (are you 
kidding?). JJ joined the lightweight crew team 
for a tour of pain which lasted several months 
until be wised up. Or did be? Soon be was 
heard to say, 'But sir, you didn't say we 
couldn't meet young ladies in the library." 
And so he went on in his mediocrity and his 
history major. 

Come second class year JJ opened his eyes 
and found out that he was smart and had a 
twisted penchant for bombarding his cranium 
with tons of old information and war strategies 
that define the History major. And so bis QPR 
did soar and he did feast upon the Gabriel, 
and Fripp. and Emerson, and other eccentric 
musicians that played unto his eclectic ear 

His pacts have now been called up and he 
is ready to embark on the great life of a 
married, evil man in green. Here's hoping you 
live to bit many a beach, JJ! Good luck. 


Allison Dee Webster 


Birmingham, Michigan 

Naval Architecture. Navy Pilot 

"Big Al" sailed to Annapolis on a windsurfer 
from the "M Go -Blue" state of Michigan (or 
state of mind). She surprised us all when she 
earned an honorary seat with "The Boys" by 
coming up with a few surprises of her own. 
Also, as one of "The Girls" she found Taboe 
skiing to be the best around. Back at school, 
the offshore sailing team offered an outlet for 
her abilities and her frustrations. When 
"which boat" was the choice for most 
members. Allison was busy choosing "which 
Skipper" Only she knows if tall, blond, and 
blue eyes is the "Right Stuff " (We think so) 
Sailing vcas great for Al - races, overnigbters. 
and Spitfire at the "Christman Yacht Club." 
But all things grow old at some point, and 
sailing for the Academy "coaches" was no 
exception. Red tape txwk its toll. However, we 
know she'll have the last laugh on them. If 
sailing on ships weren 't enough, Allison chose 
to draw them too. She chose the toughest 
major at USNA - Naval Architecture. A 
struggle, yes, but hey, wasn't it worth it??? We 
all knew Al was destined to lead, and finally, 
when someone with a mind recognized that 
fact, Al became our Seventh Co. Sub-Cdr. 
We'U never be the same. 

Well, fmally Ai's on her way to Pensacola 
(via KingsviUe of course), bound to be Navy's 
finest pilot ever. No one could be prouder than 
we are of Allison. Her spirit, determination, 
good nature, and great sense of humor and 
fairness easily earned her the respect and 
place in the hearts of her good friends. When 
you need a friend. Al is always there. And, 
although far away, Al, we'll always be here for 
you. Best of Luck ■ The Sky's the limit!!! 

Rose-Ann Leonie Wix 


Columbia Station, Ohio 

English, Marine Corps 

"Misss Wixx. We are not here to observe 

your . GET 'EM IN!" And such was the 

beginning of Rose -Ann's career at USNA. Her 
chronic inability to do chow calls (except at 
Christmas, when they took on a musical 
flavor) and membership in the "square club" 
characterized Rose-Ann's plebe year. Rose- 
Ann was alwavs active in social life at Navy. 
Her bubbly personality made her a natural on 
her version of Let's Make A Deal: Let's 
Make A Fiance. Behind Door ffSl was Jim 
Stewart, and behind Door ft83 was Jim too — 
Duran, that is. The Mexican boxer was 
Rose-Ann's harlequin hero come to life. One 
wedding dress, two engagement rings, and a 
full wardrobe later, Rose-Ann found herself 
looking at Door ff85: the Piano Man. Sgriggs. 
Finally, there was someone who enjoyed music 
as much as she did- Consequently, if we saw 
one, we saw the other, and, in any case, we 
could always hear the duet. That was 
expected, though, because it was Rose-Ann's 
singing that made her life at the Academy 
both happy and exciting. How many mids can 
say they shook hands with the CNO and the 
SecNav, danced with the Sup, and wore the 
'Dant's cover? That was not enough, though, 
because after two starring roles in two Gilbert 
and Sullivan operettas as the soprano, she 
finally got what she had always dreamed of: 
the soprano solo in the Blaster Messiah. We 
knew she had it in her. Everyone knew that 
Roaie was unpredictable, but the biggest 
surprise to us all was when our soprano 
decided to go Corps (and not Supply!). No one 
really believed it until she started locking her 
door between 2230 and 2300 so the plebes 
couldn't shave her head. But Rose-Ann — 
they never told you. Music isn't an MOS.

Carson City, Nevada 
English, Supply Corps 

It's hard to say whether this should be about 
Diane or the Carson City crowd (that 's 
Nevaaada): Kiffer, Jess, Wizzy, Mama, Papa, 
and of course. Teacher. Diane wasn't too 
homesick, though; she always bad Froggy and 
Captain Kirk nearby And she maintained her 
hug quota in the Navigators, but once the cute 
guys graduated, she had to go elsewhere, like 
the conditioning squad We all knew why she 
really failed the mile: Tim and/or Rich. By 
firstie year, it looked like she d even follow her 
2nd LT to the Corps. OK So there's a 
difference between supply and semper fl. 

something done right, do it wrong, and Diane 
will fix it, just like Mama ' " She was our mom 
and could be counted on to band out bandaida, 
hugs, or candy bars, depending on what hurt. 
She was also our "Abbey" and Betty Crocker, 
yet could break doors like Bruce Lee These 
traits, though, did not reduce her literary 
skills. She devoted so much time to our papers 
that it would have been quicker for her to have 
written them, and then she might have gotten 
her own in on time. All of this (and her 
experience as a 2nd grade CCD teacher) 
prepared her for firstie year when she spent 
a semester as an English prof drilling 
reluctant plebes in "poetry and the novel." 
And no one got up quite like she did: 
bright-eyed, busby-tailed . . . We know. 
Consider ourselves counseled. But after 9:(X), 
her mood improved, and she became the 
talkative girl with the cheery smile that we all 
loved — even if the talk was occasionally in 
German- Maybe two summers in Germany 
were too much. But one word we did learn. 
Good luck. Lady Di, and . . Tschuss!

There are few Boatonians that will 
tolerate listening to hardcore country music; 
but then. Rick wins the award for tolerance. 
Having gone through ten roommates from ten 
different states Rick has put up with all their 
quirks and activities, which were many. Plebe 
vear it was the strange Belcher-Lluy comedy 
routine and the effective studying that was 
accomplished living in a wild four man room. 
3/c vear, Bernie's throat clearing was even too 
much for those who Uved across the hall, and 
the wild nocturnal antics of Stu and Chim 
brought Rick to the verge of "Red-Eye." After 
aii this excitement Bov proved boring, so Rick 
moved into the Tavern. Through it all Rick 
has somehow remained friends with these 
former roomies, a credit to his "merlowicity. " 

Hobbies have eaten up Rick's time here. 
Basketball, magic, scrimshaw, scuba, invest- 
ing, tarantula-raising, photography, and 
bowling have claimed Rick's undivided 
attention at one time or another. Actually, it 
was not so undivided when considering that 
the only remaining plebe relationship was the 
one between him and Marianne. 

Until 1/c year. Rick had been our class 
company commander. We suppose this P-3

Nuke Company Officer. Rick however, 
received his per diem, namely, a piece of mind

Rick will be remembered most for his 
unlimited 2/c weekends, the H's. and his 
future marriage with his Boston beauty. Gotxi 
luck with the marriage. Rick, and make sure 
you can sing your kids to sleep with Jed & \lo

David R, Benson 

Walpole, Mass. 

General English, Navy Air 

Dave 's career at USNA had a strange turn 
of events. He spent more time in Dahlgren 
Hall and took more weekends as a plebe than 
he did first class year. Plebe year was very 
exciting. He spent many Saturday nights 
entertaining his young female admirers in his 
Penthouse hockey loft. It's also great having 
upperclass friends you can borrow letter 
sweaters from; except dancing on the dance 
floor as a plebe is bound to attract attention 
mainly from second class element leaders. 
Dave took hockey seriously, he needed his 
pre-game nights sleep so bad that he would 
actually tape the Ughtswitches so bis 
roommates wouldn't come in and wake him 
up. Dave took academics seriously, gouge was 
his middle name. If he had studied as hard 
as he worked gathering gouge he'd be a 4.0 
student with honors. If he had ever shared his 
gouge with all his "buddies" they would be 4.0 
students as well. If there was one thing that 
Dave never took seriously was his feet which 
smelt 80 bad that his own mother sent care 
packages with odor eaters in them. In all 
fairness Dave's career at USNA was very 
successful. He set high standards for himself 
and worked hard at achieving them all. Dave, 
we will all miss you very much and we wish 
you the beat of luck. Remember Dave, all good 
men come out on top.

Especially when Sam is around. Roderick 
needed a break in the action so be came to 
USNA. Chased by women whose names he 
couldn't remember and by drunken Indians 
was almost too much for Sambo. Besides, the 
Academy is "like falling off a log. it's cake!" 
Sam was in for a surprise, though. He had to 
survive many a "blizzard in suitcase. " The 
Aero Major put his gouge-hunting techniques, 
and his un-ending luck to the test Youngster 
year saw Sam trying to be a ISO's stud "Sam 
I Am " lettered the first season and played out 
his contract the following year, and then 
became a free agent. Instead of pursuing 
football further, he found the rack more 
appealing. During that tumultuous second 
class year, tumultuous for any Aero, he 
avoided public drunkenness by passing out in 
a sailboat at the Afterdeck. Captain Cub- 
Scout still wanted an explanation. 

First Class year brought us the "VISTA 
CRUISER", the ultimate touring machine, 
and a number of new global tragedies. Sudden 
Sam suddenly decided to go Nuke Subs. Quite 
a shock to everyone, including Sam. Yes. his 
eves cheated him out of an Air billet (The 
Navy's Loss). So he decided that if he could 
not fly a navy jet, he'd make enough money 
to buy one of his own. The fun continues at

A few things to remember along the way: 
chow packages from Wash., dentist mirrors, 
Timmy's. the aftermath of the Dynes final. 
Franny's, ski bunnies that just were not there, 
the lights (in Dahlgren) and in Wilksbarre.

the thought of a beautiful girl is sure to follow. 
Perhaps It was the red Celica and the 
numerous overland speed records that added 
to the charm. But Mark would always know 
when it was time to forget the women and 
concentrate on more important things. Take 
the spot for example. George Dickie will never 
taste the same. 

How can we forget the running. It controlled 
our lives from 6 AM to the late evening. 
Everybody was proud when Mark won the

showed that he had the ability to be the wild

know He said he came to play tennis - but 
bis efforts to make the \a <,y team was 
"Squashed" Even so. be managed to avoid 
marching. Various tennis contacts should be 
blamed for this. As an academian, he was 
never one to shun the gouge when it was 
placed in front of him. He had the sun to bis 
back. I reckon he had the edge. Luck was 
never an issue he contends, though many still 
wonder how he got by Thermo without passing 
a single test. It seems classes were never a 
problem for E. M either. I reckon they were 
just another place to catch a little shut eye. 
In fact. Ed could be found sleeping in the back 
of the class any-wbere. place, or time. His Co.

Shining Professionalism and bis "Positive" 
attitude towards a naval career. A very-

on the beaches of North Carolina with nothing

USNA was to graduate. Next on his list was 
to work his schedule to allow two IS hour 
semesters 1/c year. He did get his 16 hour 
semesters but unfortunately moat of his free 
time was spent at the computer center 

Among Steve's interest are camping and 
fishing. Of course a perfect trip does not imply 
he has hiked 20 miles in a day or caught many 
fish, it simply means be has his Cope and his 
brew with him and that there are several "jobs 
well done. " 

Steve has always been a great sports fan and 
also took an active part in baseball. He did 
learn youngster year that the object was to bit 
the ball and not Jim's face. 

Most people think that Steve became NPQ 
because of his three knee operations or bis 
allergies. The truth of the matter is that the 
surface community caught wind of the fad 
that Steve along with his first mate "the 
Chim " lost his first command, the USS 
Budweiser. during intense night operations on 
the Severen.

East Coast mothers have fallen in love with

with dates like a beauty from N.C. and an 
Amy from the garbage state. But juat like the 
cockroach out of Kafka's "Metamorphasis". 
the real Allen came crawling out at night. 
What turned our innocent Allen into "the 
Stu" began plebe year when "Mother B" made 
him come around 6 to 9 times per week and 
when a cope-dipping northern redneck 
convinced him to lay his "rate-light" down. 

Displaying artistic ability, Stu's 3/c transom 
was taken down by order of a blushing RADM. 
McCawley. The next commandant exiled Stu's 
famous bulletin boards; but to top the list, he 
sent a half-nude portrait to a fundamentalist 
christian's daughter. Stu modeled too: a 
certain army weekend would attest to that. 
Other jobs done and not so well done were the 
Pagano Destruction, the Ivan Biermeister, the 
Davidsonville mosquito, and the 15^ in 

Merliam forever changed Stu, inspiring him 
to single-handedly establish Country Corner 
and Tavern 5302. Stu also began to involve 
himself in ECA 's like the Black N club, the 
Hall Pyrotechnics club, the Steerage Runners, 
and the FHA (Firechief Helpers of America). 
He was also the president of the 8th Co. 
Nocturnal Warriors.

Just when we get to likin' somebody, they 
go nuke. Matt came from the "land of ahs", 
wherever that is. He was an intense 
midshipman, and early morning formations 
sometimes c-aught him with his pants down. 
His major obstacle in his first year was 
combating the constant influx of the gross, 
disgusting habits of those around him. 
Throughout bis era Guy thought mechanical 
engineering implied high grades. Enter the 
Rocket The ride was long and be exited with 
slight academic burns. Never the less, we 
always bad the "greatest times", no matter 
what we did. From seeing the bums in 
Pittsburgh, to throwing my lures into the 
ocean at North Carohna, fun times never 
seemed to end. In the hall, all-nighters were 
a must ■ Pm an engineer. Plebes walked in 
fear, for Matt would never hesitate to "point" 
out their shortcomings. Matt, coke in hand, 
was red-shirted his senior year. He let his 
grandmother pick his car. and always enjoyed 
cruising to "church". From the pizza-girl to 
the salami-girl, and all in between. Matt spent 
his money freely. He was a professional on the 
outside, and a country-boy at heart. He's the 
one on the left, the one with crazy eyes. I 
reckon he's gettin' out. Best of Luck.

YEAH! YEAH! Dana 's love for the mihtary

his boyhood in Rocktown. His military 
prowess flew him through Plebe year. As an 
upper class, it was books, a little Lax, Pete's, 
plans for the weekend and entering sweep- 
stakes to pick up that cash for a Tahiti 
Transit On weekends it was off to Rocktown 
for some brouhaha with the boys and 
interaction with the ladies. 

His dreams of Tahiti took him to Key West 
for consecutive Spring breaks where a good 
time was to be had. His militarism continued 
first class summer as he opted for pistol detail 
over Ocean City. But then came hia jeep and 
Dana could be seen carousing the local area 
at a fearful pace. "Jack" was game for 
anything. The Scrambler may be the sole 
reason Jack made it to graduation. 

His dreams and ambitions may be impossi-

Ocean General Engineering, 

Surface Line 

Greg came to Navy via the Marine Mihtary 
Academy and although he claims it had no 
lasting impression on him it was obvious 
during plebe summer that he was already a 
step ahead of the game. But he attributes this 
to the fact that he is a product of the fact that 
he is a product of that small milltown called 
Pittsburgh and like the steelers, success is just 
a way of life. But Pittsburgh is more than just 
a hometown for Greg, it was more Uke 
belonging to a fraternity. From the first week 
of plebe summer Greg was already getting 
visits from his native Pittsburgh buddies who 
would keep him up on the latest Pa. 
happenings. It wasn't long before he was on 
the road with them back to the Steel Mill 
country. Roadtrips became a second major to 
Greg and roadtrip he did. By second class year 
Wils had made more trips to PA than 
Trailways. It wasn 't long before our hero had 
mastered the Annapolis to Pittsburgh trip 
with an occasional slip that usually resultec 
in a small contribution to the authorities or 
local gas station. Although, when Wils wasn't 
venturing the highways he was out on the 
"links" with the golf team. But I feel we will 
all remember Greg for his cool and logical 
approach on life, bis many successful escapes, 
and for the great hospitahty his parents 
showed the boys during the darkest of ages. 
To a solid individual and a true friend. Good

Transplanted from MA to Southwest

Catholic showed up at USNA with a grin that 
stuck with her for four years. Sailing took up 
most of her time, whether she was working 
hard or playing hard. Plebe year was tough for 
Gail She was the victim of not only a few 
wayward kisses but also the whims of an 
egotistical powerlifter. In the next three years 
her room became a shelter for homeless 
MIDN. First they were homeless - then they 
weren't midshipmen. With second class year 
came the "barn " and what seemed to be a 
revolving door. How did we ever get any 
studying done"* But, alas, the terrible trio 
managed to have fun and pull out the grades. 

The second class 12 wk party at Flight's will

impressed with her cooking, the blue-eyed

he could hear it again. Most of his time in the

CobleskiU, New York 

English, Surface Line 

Nev ventured into the Academy as a 3-aport 
athlete from a small town in the mountains 
of N. Y., where his Coby Cubs produced several 
"third in the state " teams. Having been 
recruited as a catcher and Qb, he had 
expectations during the heat of plebe summer 
of being Navy's catcher, but found himself 
with the ISO's after refusing to field fungos at 
2B with bis catcher's mitt. He then transferred 
into the lax program for two seasons before 
retiring to the company muffins with all that 
natural athletic ability. "Imagine?" 
Remember the UM excursion when it 
somehow took 3 brs to get from the Vous to 
Scott's dorm. "Imagine?" Maybe a few too 
many tall cool beverages of choice? Mike's 
raquetball workouts during the latter half of 
his tenure at USNA succumbed to BUDS 
workouts with Fat Ole Waters and frequent 
rack sessions in the afternoon. But then there 
were the Flight 'Lite' Nights that became a 
part of the weekly routine. Nev was a great 
guy even though his love for the Heels had to 
be tolerated; a sports nut with an easy going 
personality: s true and dedicted LTM. We'll 
all be waiting for you to use that English 
background to write a book: "1000 Ways to 
Prepare Chicken. " To a great friend, I wish

Bubby blazed into Annapolis tan from the 
Florida sun and full of spirits and spirit. 
Despite separation from Lin and Mom, he has 
fared well at the Naval Academy. With the 
help of loopers, a big spoon, and raisin bread, 
he has found a brave new existence and has 
been designated sub commander. A potential 
"ball" player, he has unselfishly sacrificed his 
career for Mexican meal and nuclear rack 
sessions ■ a feat we give our highest medals 
for. Bub promises to give Surface some tips 
on dressing and studying. Bub's appearance is 
perfect, but so is his heart. "Although many

General Engineering, Surface 


The development of Quigs is a unique story. 
He came to Annapolis a mild mannered young 
man from Bristol. Rhode Island. He quickly 
developed and nurtured a handful of bad 
habits that he now performs to perfection. 
Most of these will help him in the fleet though, 
(gallon of coffee and 2 packs a day}. Plebe year 
allowed Q to build up a lot of gravy in his 
QPR. Systems Engineering whittled away this 
surplus until it finally got the best of him 
youngster year. With an easier major (degree 
in graduation) and a rotary rocket there was 
no stopping Quigs although quite a few tried. 
(How many demos?). Despite the frayed 
tightrope Q walked academically be always 
managed to close down the wardroom in the 
small hours of the morning. A welcome asset 
to any wardroom Q is ready for the fleet. 
Good luck.

Doctor Doper 

Pittsburgh, PA 

Chemistry, Naval Flight Officer 

The last person on the young doctor's mind 
as be saw the comely citv of Pittsburgh in his 
rear view was Al Cantelh. Little did Dallas 
know but the head coach of the track team 
and he would have one of the most popular 
love-hate relationships (mostly the latter) at 
Navy. After conveniently acquiring sprained- 
ankles during Plebe summer, he worked very 
bard to attain that same level of popularity 
through bis everyday dealings with his 
classmates. After numerous varsity track 
records, a change in majors, having to put up 
with little brother, several amorous advances 
by those of the fairer sex. and of course, the 
overwhelming demands of his new major, 
chemistry, Dallas surprised us all by selecting 
NFO on selection night. Whatever the future 
holds for Dal, we're sure it will be a bright one. 
We wish him the very best to both be and bis

Barton M. Rowe 


Brooklyn Park, Maryland 

Physical Science, Surface Line 

Bart came to the Academy with just about 
one thing on his mind ■ baseball. After 
spending a year as a Hamster, Bart drove all 
the way down Rt. 2 from Brooklyn Park to 
USNA. Bart's dedication to baseball was 
incredible. He just wouldn't let the "other" 
aspects of Academy life distract bim. 
Academics were cert-ainly no distraction. 
Bart's another dedicated LTM who managed 
to cram 2 semesters of EE into 3 semesters, 
and he still built up all that "negative gravy" 
along the way. Bart did. however, have a few 
distractions in bis four years. He managed to 
keep himself under the watchful eye of a 
certain Batt Officer for most of First Class 
year. There seemed to have been a mix-up 
over football game attendance and perfor- 
mance? The many Flight "Lite" Nights also 
brought a distraction or two. How about the 
night three of us were "water-skiing" in the 
heads? Or the many times Greg's favorite 
article of clothing was removed from his body! 
There is also THE distraction in his life - 
Colleen! It seems the one time "woman killer" 
is going to make that distraction on a 
permanent one! Bart will take many friends 
and memories with him when he leaves. I can 
only hope you have the beat of luck in San 
Diego and wherever else you go.

Mark cruised into good old USNA from 
beautiful downtown Fayetteville, NC. Mark 
always seemed to have bis act together, but 
no one really knew just bow much until he 
became one of the biggies first class year. 
Mark had spent a lot of time with L.P.Q.. the 
island, then with the boys when the island bit 
the dust. One of Sak's greater disappoint- 
ments was the search for that elusive Sunset 
Strip during Army '83. Mark didn't connect 
on Sunset, but he did manage to make the 
Sheraton the next beat thing to a KOA 
Campground. Luckily, no one was caught 

Sak partied here and there, but be saved 
most of his partying for that Main Squeeze 
back home. He did manage to save some of 
that partying for the plebers. Who can forget 
those mornings at PEP after a late one at 
Frannie's? We probably won't see much of 
Sak, because he's going to be one of those 
"special" Special Ops boys. Wherever he goes.

Rob came to USNA via tcwtruck. His 
Muatang convertible just couldn't make the 
trip from old Sore-Excuse. Fortunately it only 
cost him four arduous years of his life in 
extiacurricuiar activities. Academics played no 
role whatsoever in Rob's career Much to his 
surprise this was how they evaluated people 
here, so "KITTYHA WK here I come!" is now 
his creed. 

Rob 's other abilities enabled him to sing and 
dance his way through two different compan- 
ies, a feat achieved by only the most elite 
individuals here at USNA. 

Knowing Rob has been like knowing Charlie 
Brown or Murphy (Murphy's Law), which 
should make following his career in the fleet 
nothing less than an incredible adventure. 
Good luck on the High Seas Rob!

Political Science, Supply Corps 

In 1980 Shep decided that she was having 
too much fun at the U of Michigan and 
entered USNA in the class behind her baby 
brother. After two years you'd think she'd be 
able to drink. Well she could, but it wouldn't 
stay down (Army Plebe Year). "Mom" had 
lots of words of wisdom ■ wanted or unwanted. 
Until she found Karate to keep herself 
occupied. Youngster year she learned a lot 
about her two former roommates. She 
experienced the real meaning of "things that 
go bump in the night." She was the last to 
know C. J. 's real meaning of "good friends. " 
Airborne-Mamma couldn't keep her feet on 
the ground. If there was a tree nearby she 
landed in it, resulting in "Sbeppard's Woods. " 
Second Class Year she found her stick-man 
two floors down. Her firstborn will be 
Steven-Stephen Shepherd-Sheppard - or 
maybe he will be the -Big O". First Class Year 
the old lady enjoyed knitting in her scarce 
spare time. Weekends were spent with the 
in-laws. As Honor Chairman her weeks were 
spent - well that's private/official. Deb 
stretched herself in all she attempted because 
she knew the importance of two inches. Good

and brimming full of Southern hospitality, 
Jarreli is one of the most diligent and intense 
people I have ever met. And he gives God all

a top notch musician in our midst. He could 
play the drums (and later the guitar) with the 
best of them - and give God all the glory

distinctly as one who would go out of his way 
to make sure that the plebes were motivated. 
He knew be cared Through First Class year, 
finally, though there bad been some rough 
water and a lot of growing up to do for all of

Richmond, Virginia 

General Engineering, Surface 


John (aka Guido) came to USNA from 
Richmond. VA with joy in his heart and a 
smile on his face. 

When I first met John. I thought "geek", 
but it wasn't until later on (academic year) 
that I found out how much of a nice guy be 
really was (i.e. "cool" and "mellow"). It seems 
that' as much as I remember USNA I 
remember John. He has always been calm, self 
controlled, and extremely mature. (More than 
most folk). He is a peaceful guy — with a 
funny, spur-of-the-moment humor. 

The biggest thing in John s life has always 
been God I have always been amazed at the 
amount of revelation he knows. During the 
first years here, he was highly involved with 
the navigators and later, with other ministries. 
His presence at USNA (and graduation) has 
been a blessing from God — to whom he (and 
all of us) owe the glory. When I think of John. 
I think of a "brother"; I think of peace and 
joy personified in a way that lifts everyone up 
around bim As he goes on to his cruiser. I 
know God will use him — as He's used him 
at USNA. John, may God continue to bless 
others through you wherever you go — with 
all the glory to Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen.

go 1200 miles north and find another short 
southerner who was just as prejudiced . but 
he's polish Let's get that difference straight. 

Over the years, he's developed a love for

Cherry Hill, New Jersey 
Applied Science, Surface Line 

After a spectacular career at Valley Forge 
Military School. Nick came to the Academy 
only tc prove that would be as far as he would 
ever get in life. 

The master of the BEMHO, Nick once or 
twice gave up the rack for Rugby or Wrestling 
practice, but in the end, sleep became his 
preferred workout. Never daunted by consis- 
tent academic failure. Nick amazed us all by 
pulling it out every time. (At least there was 
one thing be wanted to pull out.) 

Early on, Nick demonstrated bis natural 
inclination towards Surface Line by piloting a 
stolen rowboat on College Creek, and sinking 
it. Along with the rest of us, Nick had always 
thought be was GREEN, but those role models 
can catch you by surprise when the choice has 
to be made. 

Nick always made a point of bis good looks 
and athletic physique. However, with the face 
of a pre-historic cartoon character and an 
extra 20 pounds after every vacation, we began 
to have our doubts. 

Girls, to use the term loosely, were Nick's 
major endeavor. Somehow, be always managed 
to work his way into the heart of every girl 
he met. and from there . . . How was 8-3, 

Nicii swore he would never go out with 
anything in a uniform; little did he know they 
felt the same way about him. 

Nick was a great road-trip companion. It's 
hard to be a nuisance when you're passed out 
after the first 100 miles. One Spring Break. 
Nick vowed to drink 10 cases of beer, which 
ended in unconsciousness on the 4th day. 

But whether it was girls, beer, or machismo. 
Nick always had a story to tell and a smile 
to go along with it. Though we can't really 
figure out why, we all love him, honestly.

August Howard arrived at Annapolis 
bearing a reputation of enormous prominence 
only typical of valedictorians at educational 
institutions such as NAPS. However, this 
former Buffalo resident is not limited to 
excellence in academics alone. After many 
seasons of watching hapless Buffalo sports 
teams. Howie launched his own athletic 
campaign. When the challenge of playing 
Navy soccer ended. Auggie shelved his letter 
sweater and became a demon on the 
intramural scene. Whether on the football 
field or basketball court. Howie is truly one 
of the few, the bold, the testosterone-laden. 

On a more professional note, this former 
project 21 member can best be described as 

presidents have maintained a "D" in conduct. 
Political Science proved to be the perfect 
outlet for the sharp wit and barbed tongue of 
this New Yorker. No officer or teacher at the 
Academy is too important to feel the bite of 
Howie's off-the-cuff sarcasm. Nor would any 
professor dare give him less than a high "B" 
on a ten-page paper slopped together at the 
typewriter overnight. Biamark - The 
Diplomat and Cold War - A Conflict of 
Interest are on permanent resen-e at the 
Nimitz library. 

Socially, Howie will soon be tying the knot 
with another former Buffalo inhabitant - 
Lynne Sroczynaki. Every weekend Howie can 
be found high-speed cruisin the Beltway in his 
black Vette en route to his fiancees' bumble 
abode in Va. Let this not be misconstrued. 
Howie can not party with native Virginians as 
evidenced by bis attempt to take on two good

If anyone in Tenth Company enjoyed the 
good life it is certainly Hunington Beach's 
favorite son. Wally was a typical California 
boy with few. but well chosen vices. From 
Hood to Goucher. from the river to Marines 
the east coast will never forget him. 

Champagne taste was Walter's hallmark. 
Fast cars and hi-tech stereo equipment were 
'must haves' in bis lifestyle. To support these 
expensive habits he tried a brief stint as sales 
representative for Escort fuzz busters but 
there was no future in it. In the end the dollar 
signs beat a path to the doors of the elite force 
and Walter was 'goin' down" for a price. 

Wally was not without bis talents of course. 
How many times was the planet saved by his 
fast hands at the Defender controls? And who 
else could locate the OOW with such certainty 
at such appropriate times? Yes. be was great 
to have around at times like those, when his 
smiling face lit up the night with its warm 

Style was another of Wally's attributes. He 
switched with ease from beach boy to prep and 
was never out of place on either shore. A real 
trendsetter, he pioneered the collarless SDB 
look. If only we had seen what you saw that 
night, but you are an officer and a gentleman. 

Now you are off to another beach town to 
lead the simple life and our hearts go with you.

Gregg Marvil 


San Juan, Puerto Rico 

Political Science, Surface Line 

Marv went from the sands of San Juan to 
the shores of the Severn as a professional 
scholarly giant. This image was quickly loet 
whenever he got a beer in his hand. He 
transformed instantly into "The Latin Lover 
Maaan, the women, they need me." Marv's 
spread his philosophy to all who would listen 
— He even bad a book published with his 
greatest quotes. The first chapter discussed 
the question of "Why do people know?" It 
went on to discuss Marv's most famous quote. 
"He had a feeling, that's why he shot it." 

Even though you might not agree with bis 
philosophy, you had to like Marv. Who else 
would go UA twice, get class A 'd twice or who 
else could have been chosen for company 
commander, just two weeks after being fried 
for going to a concert on Tuesday night? Marv 
had the talent of completing three 10-page, 
A + papers in 3 days. Not all the cards were 
dealt his way, though. Gregg wanted to go to 
graduate school in bis senior year, and through 
hard work and determination qualified for 
this. But this was not to be as the Navy 
interfered. This just led Marv to hit the coast 
button First Class Year. 

Gregg excelled in sports and academics. 
Marv was a great pettier. Local bars and 
colleges gave him the chance to use his Latin 
charm. Often times he would just end up with 
some "chili" at the end of the night. Marv 
went on to be one of the moat popular 
company commanders in 10th company's long 
and glorious history. Marv, may you go on to 
have a successful "5 years" in the fleet and

Fairfax, Virginia 

Applied Science, Surface Line 

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from 
the prestigious Wyoming Seminary Prep 
School, John Hampton came to Annapolis in 
search of a Rhodes Scholarship. His 1.1 CQPR 
first semester plebe year severely hurt his 
chances for this and Hamp's heart was broken. 
Luckliy for Na\>y, Hamp took out his resulting 
frustrations on the gridiron where be was a 
four year letterman. Incidently, that feat was 
equaled only by a somewhat heralded 
linebacker. Hamp was hoping for a USFL 
tryout this spring, however there are no teams 
in search of a "steady, consistent performer" 
with a "B" in military performance By the 
way Hamp, what seems to be this problem 
you're having with Miss Hittle? 

Hamp found in a fiancee someone who could 
finally match him in pectoral size. Kim will 
be taking her accounting degree along with her 
to supplement Hamp's substantial 0-1 pay. 
While Hamp was not known for conduct 
violations, be saw nothing inherently wrong 
with an appliance filled room - gotta have 
something to keep the beer cold right"^ 

Hamp 's naval future is still somewhat 
undecided. Actually, he is biding his time until 
Uncle Harry becomes CNO at which point 
Hamp predicts there will be marked im- 
provement in all his fitness reports. Disap- 
pointed that there were no forest ranger billets 
on service selection night. Hamp will have to 
store bis camping gear for a while - along with 
bis talents at four-wbeelin'.

after two years, with only one "B" in his 
academic life, Joe was on his way. Anywhere 
he wanted. 

Not too many people know the value life like

But the life of strict academics wore thin on

Youngster year brought the docile Dakotan 
out of his shell as he began to stalk the streets 
of Annapolis with "The Boys". After a black 
eye. cut face, 20 days restriction, and ten room 
tours, he was back at his Naval Arch books 
to stay. Second Class year Tim was in his glory 
as he finally got to impart his enormous 
professional knowledge onto some people who

the Gay Club, be was improving half the

He matured and brought a '67 Mustang only 
opened the opportunity to go to further places 
for trouble. At one time he was so common 
at Hood College that USNA forwarded his 
mail there. As a senior it was also the perfect 
time for concerts, except going during the 
week may cost a few weekends. 

His leadership ability was best shown by 
having the WUBA gang disbanded after be

him as a member.

him the inside track on a little brown-nosing. 
One of the truly great procrastinators. you 
could always find Sbep kicked hack at his 
desk, can of Pepsi, dip cup and mocassins, 
pretending to be doing homework. He was 
truly one who lived and died by the gouge- 
Rest assured if there was any. Shep bad it. 
Shep always found great excuses to skip the

SOW watch count for BOOW. too. Sbep" 

Soccer was Shep's claim to fame until the 
coach didn't see things the exact way he did. 
He took up distance running to the tune of 
26+ miles. This kept him in good shape, if 
you're attracted to "sticks" Shep did 
eventually find romance, one which saved him 
a tidy sum on stamps and phone bills.

Ivoryton, Connecticut 
Oceanography, Navy Pilot 

You would think that after four years at the 
Naval Academy Scott would have changed a 
little bit. But Scott hasn't changed a bit since 
day one. He's still as laid back as ever. His 
casual attitude and pleasant smile quickly 
made him famous among upperclass. Scott 
was the greatest buddy that a plebe could ever 
have, because be did such a great job of 
attracting all the attention from the upper- 
class to himself. Needless to say, Scott became 
well liked by all of us. 

When it came to weekends and partying. 
Scott was always at the forefront. He knew all 
the local bars and colleges better than any of 
us, and he will always be remembered at a 
couple of them. During his first two years. 
Scott did a lot of research, but he finally found 
the answer in bis hometown high school honey. 
When it came to drinking, Scott never fell 
behind, although he did fall down a couple of 
times. As a drinking buddy, be was the best. 
You could always talk him into going out in 
town for a couple, even when you weren't 
supposed to. Scott was always participating in 
anything eventful. He was one of the dirty 
dozen, the Moody Blues concert boys, and the 
Winnebago bunch. 

When it came to academics. Scott figured 
out very quickly how to use his study time 
most efficiently. He never spent more than 3-4 
hours a week studying, and the rest of the 
time, be would be either at WRNV or in the 
wardroom watching TV 

Scott made a decision to go to Pensacola 
after graduation, because his casual attitude 
and personality will enable him to blend right 
in with the rest of the airdales.

It was only four short years ago that the

John with a cynical, doubting gleam m his

again. Despite the miseries and woes of plebe 
summer and a near fatal bout with the plague. 
he steadfastly maintained his grim outlook. It 
appeared that he would live out the rest of bis 
naval career believing that the light at the end 
of the tunnel was only an oiler out of Norfolk. 
But that was not to be. 

The first sign we had of a sense of humor 
beneath that fatalistic front was a nearly 
successful attempt to suspend the Box from 
an upper bunk by his waistband. But plebe 
year went by with no one noticing this subtle 

The next two years left John with a deep 
respect for the surface Naiy. He returned each 
summer with exciting tales of life aboard oilers 
and amphibs and we began to see a wiser, 
saltier Zwirn. Suddenly there was more to life 
than Chemistry and bicycles. Even the loss of 
four weeks of leave in exchange for an 
"opportunity to excel" did not break his 

The story at least has a happy ending that 
points to another, even better beginning One 
might even say that the Zwirn /f satisfied with 
bis lot. Despite the dark prophecies bis smile 
does not he. It was not so bad after all. was 
it John" Best of luck, keep smiling, but don't

Junior's high aspirations met their demise in

luckv life was a complete opposite to Junior's 
"hard work" approach to USNA. Dave would 
room with Habib for two years during which 
he was indoctrinated t-o this random life style 
and WOMEN. Dave did not reach his full 
potential as one of the "laid back JO'7 " until 
Habib departed the tigers of Utb to become 
envoy to 23rd. The next summer "it" 
happened. Since then Junior has been a basket 
esse. At least nowadays people ask "can he get

been in a 3 yr. slump. Chin up Junior, odds 

Junior has played 4 yrs. of varsity lax and 
maintained a 2.7 GPA almost entirely by hard

Wade or Tracy (whatever he wants to be

Where? We heard his name often plebe year 
as his big brother was a big striper, maybe this 
is why Wade was translating German in a nice 
easy major while some of us were stupid 
enough to try and figure out why F=MA and 
why you can't push a rope. Another hint he 
got from his big brother was to get as much 
travel as possible. If Wade wasn 't busy 
explaining why be wasn't the company's best 
marcher to the Company Officer, he was on 
a movement order or out "scoping". Well, 
Wade was determined to be unmotivated by

prevailed, and he became Company Com-

by "the boys" in the Hall, claims be is a real 
cowboy from Texas only he never heard of 
country music until the "skin " and the 
"Bakes" told him what it was. In his first two 
years at the academy, Billy was dedicated to 
the management major and his favorite sport, 
tennis- His hfe changed drastically when the 
"Turfman: the junior Birdman" landed at 
USNA- Unlike the Colorado Flying School. 
Mex showed Turf that you don 't need an 
airplane to find where the fun is. Being a good 
boat. Tex volunteered as a Zoomie scout and 
as a ladder when it just didn 't feel right going 
through the main gat^. 

However. Billy wouldn't let things end. He 
felt it was his duty to show Bakes and Skin 
bow to have fun. This led to the Cellar. 'Vou. 
Bayou, and Annie's. His luck ran out when 
coming back from another "gigolo" night when 
he and the Skin thought that second class 
rated civilian clothes and parking in the yard. 
This event was the start of his professional 
life-haircuts, restriction musters and selling 
thumbs at basketball games. Casanova's party 
days ended with Turfs return for the Zoomie 
game. Of course Mex volunteered to play host 
again. Little did be know but the end was

Ted arrived at the Sea School after 
surviving life on the North Coast - Cleveland. 
Ohio. Not exactly sorry to leave, he came to 
Navy looking for a challenge and a future. He 
immediately found his challenge in the form 
of plebe year and academics. Fortunately 
though. Ted survived Plebe year with some 
good memories and a unique nickname. 
Youngster. Second, and First class year. 
"Coins" evolved into a roadtrip man with a 
race to the Cape that culminated m a 47 
minute "ride for life". Not to be outdone by 
previous feats, he worked long and hard on 
many other roadtrips with Frank. Linus. Mike, 
and his brother Kip. He also gained an 
undying interest in finance when he began to 
realize that money could be fun to spend. Even 
more fun than money though, he made 
extensive searches all 4 years for the perfect 
woman. Ted's four years were also spent in the 
pool swimming or playing Polo, with his nose 
in the Wall Street Journal, in the library, and 
looking at the future. Despite a close call with 
Subs, Ted's future is as a U.S. Marine; A 
future he'd been working years for. "Coins" is 
grateful to his friends (Mike M, Tim W., Joe 
A.. Mark P.. Perry H.. Bix) for making tough 
times enjoyable and having been blessed with 
a Mother and Father second to none. He's 
dedicated to the Lord and will give his all for

School God has always been first in Greg's life 
and the Naval Academy is part of the Lord's 
plan for Greg. With all the hustle and bustle 
of plebe summer. Greg soon became boggled. 
But he seemed to rise above it all. and rise 
and rise. Plebe year ended and Greg was 
thrust into a new challenge - "The Room". 
With Ted. Bill. Perry, and Munoz around it 
would have been easy to go crazy but Greg 
didn't. Youngster year brought about added 
studies, added work, and added altitude. Greg 
always had time to sit down and talk about 
life, love and the Lord. His sincere concern for 
everybody adds a comforting touch to his 
character. He has helped those m need and he 
will continue to do so. A major in Aero brought 
Greg many sleepless nights his junior year, and 
Dave Blank provided more spiritual leader- 
ship. Although Greg tried not to show it. his 
loneliness for Gayle hurt. Greg and Gayle will 
marry in July. (YEAAAAA) The Navy has a 
very capable NFO coming its way. A man who 
is thorough in his work, sincere in his heart,

bags were bigger than she was. She worked 
bard but had lots of spirit and drive in her. 

First it was Bermuda, then 2/c year it was 
New York — I'm glad they're so special to you. 
Our room looked like a florist shop with all 
the roaes. How about the marathon phone calls 
— Ma Bell loves you too $$$$. 

Janet's two big days in '84 will be May 23 
and 24. Jan. you've been a good friend and 
almost a sister — thank you. Get that EE

a Columbian named "Munzo" who'll be hiring 
hia engineer friends from II to start hia own 
company (or is that country?). Here's to your

Perry came from the land of sun and ocean 
looking for a chocolate-chip cookie and a 
dollar. Immediately recognizing the good deal 
to be had at Canoe V-. Perry breezed through 
Plebe Summer Few of us will forget his 
General Hospital version of "My Girl's a Good 
Girl " With Academic Year in full swing. Perry- 
realized that the best place to be was between 
a zero and a hard place and slightly to the 
right of the squad "screen." Anybody want 
some pie'' Cruising to Herndon. Perry got his 
halo by presidential directive and has kept it 
ever since. One sub cruise later. "Piggins" 
thought himself under-involved in the 
company and subsequently volunteered for 
every Job except the Supe s, Jersey Joe was the 
primary beneficiary of Perry's gunginess. yet 
even he found it wise to be somewhere else 
when that final watch was assigned youngster 
year. Second-class year Perry seemed to be the 
only one on the company officer's nuclear 
level, and did his usual best, academics being 
one of Perry's strong points. After a nuke 
surface cruise and plebe detail, Perry found 
bis niche: Batt Sub-commander under Charles 
the Magnificent, a tough job if ever there was 
one. Hae those rack burns gone away yet. 
Perry'^ When it came time to sign away his 
life, Perry remembered the CA and went subs.

Computer Science, Marine Corps 

The first two years Ben was at the academy 
be was aby, quiet, hard working and stayed 
away from trouble. Second class year be found 
himself with a new roommate and the real 
Skin showed himself. If be wasn 't arguing with 
his roommate about toothpaste, desk space or 
Forum, he was manipulating someone in the 
company with a devious plan. Nobody ever 
realized Ben's potential as a con artist and he 
soon bad people, including women, wrapped 
around his finger. As far as staying away from 
trouble, that ended with the late night out 
with Tex. Skin and Tex couldn't remember 
who said that second class couldn 't park in the 
Yard, but the OOD did! They went from the 
Cellar to the doghouse (restriction) in one 
short weekend. 

First Class year found Ben as one of the best 
high power rifle shooters in the nation and 
with a few more "notches" in the belt. He also 
continued to venture out on more memorable 
"gigolo" weekends. Some would argue that be 
paid his dues for such outings. His hardships 
included computer class retakes, late night 
studying and academic restriction. However, it 
ail evened out on the Labor Day weekend '83, 
Mao and Reisterstown experience of the 
closest kind, and all those senseless Cheecb 
and Chong flicks. Hopefully the Marines will 
be able to harness Ben's energies. 

Good luck Ben. I hope someday you meet 
your match. When you do, I want to meet her

Bravo Zulu to midshipman Karabin as he 
launches into bis career afloat. Drew came 
aboard from the steel town of Bethlehem, Pa. 
... via the Naval Academy Preparatory 
School. Drew started his career here by 
working hard in his classes and playing 
football. But sophomore year brought out the 
best of midshipman Karabin. No more 
football, graphics and running with some 
shady characters (Haddad, Petro, Plog, Davey, 
Todd, Z, Bakes) brought some troubled time 
into Drew's path. But did that bother him? 
Of course not. Drew still smiled, be still kept 
bis great attitude toward people and VSNA. 
Drew brightened everybody's life and be still 
wandered mto dark silent rooms to ask "Are 
you guys asleep?" Drew entered his junior year 
as a management major and the star of the 
Batt tennis team. He suffered through 6-n 
days, MCBO 's, and Bum gouge. Mega bummer 
man. The high point of this year was the end 
of Kehoe's domain and the arrival of Cathy 
(Haddad's Sister). Then there was Subic Bay 
and more of Cathy. Senior year came and 
Cathy went but Appolo Still was busy juggling 
two different ladies. Drew passes graphics 
(nnally} and went skiing with Davey again. 
(Don 't ask about the cold floors and the girls 
next door) Drew has lived life here at the 
academy and not just gotten-by. Smiles, 
laughs and good times. We love you Drew, 
keep in touch, you crazy knucklehead you.

Becky came to us from the streets of Philly 
with basketball in hand, and one thing on her 
mind and that was to play "hoops". Soon her 
interests grew and she reached her peak 2/C 
summer running through the all male hallways 
at Fort Myers, stealing government property, 
and banging out at V-U's. To know Becky is 
to love her and realize just how talented she 
really is. Not only does she play basketball and 
throw the javelin, but she plays piano, guitar, 
and drums as well. Always the thoughtful 
friend, she tried often to share her talents with 
others. Becky took special pity on one poor 
spastic neurotic paranoid and attempted to 
teach me to play the guitar Ithank goodness 
you finally got the pick out). Beck, in short, 
ia one of those people you can't think about 
without smiling. For her roommate Ginger, 
thoughts of a certain Marine and broken 
windows brings about grins. For me it's 
memories of Tolger's daring plastic spoon 
attack, your solo food fights at various mess 
halls and the way you came to my aid the 
night of the terrible tick attack. Let me 
apologize once and for all for giving a way your

Rockville, Maryland 

Ocean Engineering, Marine Pilot 

Stories could be told forever about the 
"madman." Along with his fellow bad 
influences. (Haddad. Karabin. Ploegeri Petro 
made waves at VSNA more than once. 
Probably the most memorable being the 
assault at U of Maryland where he scared 10 
.VTS out of a couple college hoys for being 
called a squid Petro still maintains it was 
Haddad's fault for stopping the car even 
though be spent the night in jail. This classic 
bought him many days in smoke hall and a 
trip to striper school (didn 't help, only 2 
stripes). His top priorities were women, fun. 
& sports. He applied himself and excelled in 
all 3. Women, many considered, a talent of his 
(as Linde. Patty. Debbie. Terrie. Lisa. etc. will 
attest to) not however by the way he dressed 
(a steady domibill trend - come on Petro. "elf 
boots'.). Petro lettered in 150 lb. football, 
played rugby and now "bulks" out. 

For service selection be picked Marine Air, 
a characteristic choice. What is the Marine 
Pilot mentality':' The 1st time he ever rode a 
snowmobile be saw bow fast it would go! and 
almost died. Look out Corps and somebody 
help Pensacola. Best of luck Petro. you'll be 
the 2nd best Marine Pilot ever (2nd to Habib 
the Horrible). No one doubts he will be a fine 
Marine Officer, it s the perfect profession - he 
might even get married some day. Nab! .

all grew sick of bearing how great history 
majors are, be game ua up for lost. 

Although be didn't come from the culture 
capital of the world, he explained this away 
by pointing out that he went to a private 
school on the East Side. Mark is best known 
plebe summer for the "whit^ walls" that Mr. 
Tracy graciously provided him but his biggest 
achievement came plebe year. Tracy, bis 
fiancee, must have seen the intellecutai 
beyond beergogglea and companions of 
doubtful character to pick him up in a joint 
like Timmy's. Mark has had his share of trials 
at Canoe V. Despite help from his loyal 
friends, he managed to learn to cut pies 
correctly. He also overloaded bis classes so 
that he could disappear first-class year to 
U.M. Has anyone seen him in uniform since? 
However, be did lead the class of '87 to drill 
proficiency, after be learned to call half the 
commands on the right foot. Road trips with 
Mark will always be remembered, too, for the 
White Russians, San Miguel Dark, and the 
vast number of Grand Prizs he pointed out to 
us. For service selection. Mark picked Nuc.

acroas the river from Forest Hills, city and

guerrilla tactics and business management. He 
also studied the stock market and was 
interested in real estate development. He had.

Dave came to the Chesapeake University of 
Naval Technology from the small town of 
Greenville NY, bringing with him dedication, 
good morals and a sense of humor. Putting his 
true love, motorcycles, on hold Dave managed 
to survive plebe and youngster years pretty 
well. Second class year was a different story- 
Red had to forget about the morals and 
dedication when he found himself in a room 
with Turf, Mex, and the professor Life was 
always interesting (right TurD but eventually 
the events that took place in 3150 resulted in 
a Kehoe backed maneuver that split them up. 
Second class year also marked Dave's return 
to battle on the motocross tracks of Maryland. 
Virginia, and New York (thanks Beef Fiddler, 
and ApoUo). Although pilot was not to be. 
Dave still takes to the skys aboard his trusty 
tronhorse YZ. First class year saw more racing 
action. It also found Mex and Dave with the 
same problem. The question is; who is going 
to give in first? 

After graduation (finally!) you wiU find 
Dave under the deep blue seas. Good luck 

John Alfred Sylvester 
Silver Spring, Maryland 
Political Science, Navy Pilot 

I'm not sure exactly how I met John or 
where be claims to lay his hat. My earliest 
memories of John were in Chemistry lab where 
his Copenhagen tin often found its way into 
other's titrations. Youngster year found John, 
John's brother. Tom; and "Stone" (who is 
rumored to be the missing link.) engaging m 
hijinks and planning future expeditions in the 
library. The furst expedition introduced many 
good things: that cool refreshing drink - Jack 
Daniel 's snowballs; hearty meals such as 
"Camper's Compote." and other delightful 
delicacies like "Bananas Sylvester. " Second 
class year began with Protramid in all of its 
glories. The death ride with Stumpy, the 
one-legged outlaw, the beaver dash, ripping 
apart gym shorts for fun and profit, the 
nuclear lounge, the golf game, the guardian of 
peace, the female bigfoot monster swim, 
mechanical bull-riding, and Andy's 50 or 60 
little pets he picked up in Quantico were ail 
banner momenta of the summer. The entire 
situation only got richer the following 
academic year. John convinced his parents of 
his dire need for a Porsche and found himself 
a girl. First class year continued John's 
spiraling decline into decadency. John met 
Betsy and bought a truck; pawning the 
Porsche off on bis little brother A mere 
skeleton of his former self. John fasted away 
the fall playing ISO's. John is a truly 
remarkable person; probably the moat intense 
individual I've ever met. Be it studying, 
playing, or gotcha-laat, John goes all out. He'll 
make one bell of a wingman. Good luck in

Dro skated through Plebe Summer totally

the first appearance of a girl whom Pedro has

Protramid brought a new dimension into Dro 's

saw more things than a mere list can possibly 
describe: the Army party, our exchange

Unlike most midshipman, Eric Baker never

letter winner in gymnastics, having mastered 
the art of landing on his bead. This scrambled 
his eggs enough that be took senior year off 
and devoted himself to his two favorite 
pastimes, the grape and the rack. Eric 
frequently lost touch with the concept of 
moderation resulting in his often losing 
control, even with his bodily functions. He 
reminds one of a chemist who has the ability 
to produce one thing three different ways in 
the course of a night. But be must get an A 
in reliability for you knew where be was 95% 
of the time, in the rack. He makes Rip Van 
Winkle look like a workaholic. Academically, 
he was masterful. He would raise his grades 
to a point where he would sleep through finals 
and still achieve a decent QPR. He seems well 
suited to bis major. Oceanography. But why 
not, labs on the bay consisted of having oysters 
on the half shell. With all his Cine devotion 
to duty and excellence, Eric is sure to do well 
in bis chosen field of Geophysics. Heck, 
studying rocks cannot be that hard. Eric will

time came by. bringing Paul a cruise in San 
Diego onboard USS Frederick (LST 1184) and 
a new academic year as an Aero Major Second

idea for a prospective Marine pilot to know 
how to jump out of planes. So Devil Pup set 
his mind and body on Airborne Training. 
Second class year, the new class co. cdr., 
wearing shiny silver wings, led the class

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,

has to be a Dahlgren Dearest. The A-l was

The academy certainly changed our slow 
talking little boy from Kansas City into a 
South Philly. fast talking stud- We will always 
toast to vou with red wine in remembrance of 
vour performance at the plebe year 12th 
Company barf fest. Youngster year marked 
the emergence of Squirmin' and your boxers 
out in the hallway with nowhere to run. It's 
amazing that Herman was contained so long 
with all the aprodisiaks you ate (or was it the 
protein pills'^). You can't deny that your idols 
changed from Elvis and the Statlers to the 
Greaseman and Scarbelly It was quite a 
revelation when we realized we were beating 
each other up due to your instigation. We 
know how much you enjoyed it when we 
diverted our aggressions toward you. We also 
hope you learned where not to park your car 
before Ring Dance. Your exponentially 
decreasing physical status will always inspire 
us and will lead to your position as athletic 
officer on all your subs. Who would ever have 
thought that the Nuke Power program would 
ever be in such dire straits? 

Take good care of Angela — she deserves

You came to USNA via Drexel Hill. PA as 
one of their best^" Your squad leaders over the 
summer couldn't help but be amused by the 
naive little boy who thought a line officer wa> 
the guy who says, "Put over the bow line 
And really. John, hoisting the ensign does mn 
mean "banging the new graduates on the 
flagpole. " Bur your hard work and indus- 
triousness pulled you out of that slump. 

Could it have been more opportune to have 
won a brilliant YP cruise out of the same hat 
as B.K '^ Those immortaJ words that sent the 
guy into a fit of tears: "I hope not, Brian'" 
And what about that other classic: "It's 
Hetrick'" But only a few guys ever got to you 
— like ole J. T. "You missed a spot . . you 
couldn't have gotten up on the wrong side ol 
the bed — there's only one side!" And how 
did all your sheets end up in the head"* And 
are vou sure na^y air is for you — after all. 
you developed symptoms of air sickness on 
service selection night. 

You were quite fickle with your women. You 
^'^t up your impotent roomy. Cuz, with your 
best friend. Nancy. When they were happy, 
you decided you wanted her back. But 
everything turned out for the best, 'cause Cuz

Management, Surface Warfare 

Bob came here from Virginia Beach hoping 
to earn wings of gold as his father had 23 years 
before. Plebe Summer saw Bob's initial 
ve and he had to finish the 
a white-haired rodent. With a 
few key connections Bob was able to get 
through plebe year with relative ease and 
plenty of sandwiches. However, an afternoon 
with Herb and the Cheesehogs ruined its last 
day. Youngster year for Bob was perhaps his 
easiest Bob could never figure out why 
someone would park 7 miles away. He found 
it much more reasonable to park in the 
midstore lot and did so for 3 years - Dad's rank 
has its privileges. Have wheels will travel, and 
Bob did. He loved the girls almost as much 
as he loved himself; Coblentz Hall will never 
be the same. His only worry youngster year 
was to ensure his rack was made and the lights 
were out. Ha\ing fun above and beyond what 
he rated caused the early morning breakfast 
club to catch up with him second class year. 
Never one to avoid a challenge. Bob joined the 
band of brothers - Navy Crew. After that Bob 
was a frequent patron of Haisey. MacDon- 
ough. Lejune and Hubbard. The envelope has 
never been so narrowly defined. First class 
year was quite a letdown for Bob. everything 
became legal. Years of intense studying in the 
solarium claimed his perfect vision, so he's 
beaded for the Battleship Navy. Bob kept us 
laughing from 1-Day till graduation, and we're 
glad to count him as a friend. Fair ninds and 
following seaa. Pal.

Mechanical Engineer, 


Chief left Springfield, Massachusetts on 
September 12. 1977 to begin his Naval 
adventure. First he enlisted as a machinist 
mate, then served aboard a ship, later studied 
at nuke school and prototype, and finally was 
assigned to a submarine At some point he 
realized the navy was not just an adventure 
but a job. so he applied to the Naval Academy. 

He wasn't lucky enough to get accepted on 
his first try, so he spent a year at NAPS After 
NAPS, he gave up his E-5 pay. sold his brand 
new camaro. and left his girlfriend to take the 
big step up to become an officer. 

Chief loved plebe year because of all the free 
coffee He spent a lot of time over at Hubbard 
Hall learning to drive a crew shell on the plebe 
heavyweight team. (Has he learned yet '^ I He 
rode the first boat and kept high grades 
Youngster year his grades started sinking and 
crew wasn 't helping them stay afloat Second 
class vear he quit crew to earn stars iMaybe 
he really did go to the library every night to 
study). He listened to a crazy man and went 
out for crew again. The hunger strikes paid off 
- Chief raced in the first boat again. 

His short timer's chain is for graduation, ll 
thought only enlisted people do that) Let's 
hope Chief can drive a submarine better than 
a crew shell, but if he can get his people as 
motivated as oarsman in a shell, he'll do just

Johnnv comes to USNA from the cold water 
3t3te of Michigan, the land that made America 
American -made. He cruised through plebe 
vear dragging down stellar grades and 
surviving his summer roomie Al. Youngster 
vear came and Johnny settled in with 
Funkadehc. Hobo, and Cus and the nuclear 
sweat pump image. Time was divided between 
studies and the boathouse. One of the original 
pretenders, he was known to take time from 
his busy schedule to pose for PR photos at the 
behest of Navy Crew. A radical change was in 
store for second class year as Johnny left the 
pumps to live amongst the Oakies. Afternoons 
spent with the mad galaxie driver or the rack 
nearly brought the vengeance of God down 
upon him. Divine intervention saved his 
weekends for Saturday night tours complete 
with refreshments of Annapolis' finest 
establishments which ended playing quarters 
in Dahigren followed by worship services at 
the porcelain altar. This set the tone for the 
big Army-Navy trip with Harry, Bakes, and 
KEK. Low on funds but not alcohol, the trip 
would have ended if not for well-timed 
breathing into the carburetor. 

First Class year brought forth the foresight- 
edness that Johnny always seems to have. He 
prepared himself for Na\y Air by keeping the 
grades up and flying with VTNA. Always the 
practical man. though, be was one of the few 
selected for SERE school at USAFA to 
compensate for pilot error. Finish high and fly 
high all over the world. No luck needed 'cause 
he's quality and the best friend to us who 
know him best.

No one has ever figured out where you came 
from (or where you 're going). There were even 
times when we wished that the "Room Cdr" 
would go back. We sure did miss you when you 
went off to Zoomie Land because we had no 
one who was "always right". Your unique 
method of proving a point (one or two fists) 
will carry you far with your Band of Brothers 
(It's got a good beat, the kids can dance to 
it. I'd give it an 84). Your passion for ducks 
on the highway far outweighed your compas- 
sion for us (Did you ever get the Vette fixed?). 
Of course your quest for the ultimate girl 
without fat thighs will never cease. We never 
thought a lightweight crew jock with bags 
under his eyes could do so well with the 
Deb-U-Nots. It must be the fact that crackers 
are an aphrodisiac! Despite the fact that we 
were bruised, suffered concussions, and had 
our lockers busted, you're OK by us. Best of 
Luck always Chip!

Livermore, California 

General Engineering, Navy NFO 

One would almost think that Chris should 
have been born with wings. His love of flying 
is only paralled by his intense fascination and 
extensive knowledge ofaircrafts which extends 
back to the Wright Flyer. Actually, Chris has 
many interests including sporty modes of 
transportation. Yes, he is a car buff. He 
visualizes himself strapped into leather Recaro 
seats, with 13 position controls, surrounding 
him is a fully equipped Toyota Supra nith 
5-apeed transmission, smoked glass windows, 
lustrous black paint job with gold pinstrip- 
ping, and gold alloy wheels with P7 tires, and 
. . . then he wakes up. Chris started out as a 
mechanical engineer but soon saw the light 
and decided that the saying, "Sooner or later 
you'll go general" had some validity. Actually. 
Chris added a new twist to the general 
engineering curriculum which one could call 
Select-O-QPR. The way it works is you select 
the courses which will have the greatest 
buoyant effect on your QPR. If after a few 
days in class, you decide that you've made a 
bad "selection", you "engineer" a new 
schedule. According to Chris, the end justified 
the means because he got his NFO billet. 
Hopefully, in a year and a half. Chris will be 
in the back seat of an F-14 flying off the IKE. 
Best Always,

Th is future U- boa t driver came from 
Wauwatosa, Wisconsin to the good life here at 
USNA. Striving towards bis maximum 
potential. Flounder set the example by taking 
on the Systems Engineering Department, and 
bv joining the Naval Academy Yachting Club. 
Kent worked hard to keep up spirit during the 
first three years by decorating the room with 
rose bouquets, and giving out free champagne, 
Kek exemplified the good life by skippering 
Moxie and Connie, two of the Yachting Club's 
finest pleasure craft. Many a fall Saturday saw 
3-stripers marching their companies towards 
Navy-Marine Corps Stadium, while this 
company commander sailed serenely out 
Santee. wheel in one hand, glass of wine 
(Christian Brothers. Chateau La Salle, 1980) 
in the other. Kent taught us all a lesson in 
chivalry youngster year when he went over the 
great brick barrier to comfort his florist in her 
time of need. Of course being a class act takes 
money, so Kent invested his car loan, 
becoming the A. J. Foyt of the investment 
world. Kent's rougher edges were revealed 
when be brought in his Bob Seger collection 
youngster year, and when he brought that 
sporty little Volare (Chrysler) to school. Kent 
will most likely be the first U-Boat skipper to 
sink a target while wearing a dinner jacket and 
smoking a cigar. Remember Kent, the dream 
is always the same, you step out of your 944, 
but you are not in the garage, you are on the 
bridge of your first aluminum tube, and FRY 
HOG is the skipper . . .

When one thinks of Terry, he is reminded 
of something else about him — his many girls. 
Even plebe year's restrictive rat^s did not keep 
him from dating; however, he did have close 




ned T and Ln 

Remember "We're youngsters. Sir'" Our local 
hangouts came to be Pete's and the Buzzard. 
Not the studious type. Terry spent numerous 
hours and dollars at poker with "Wadd, " Fish. 
"Wade." and others who wanted his money- 
He did manage to get a 2.0 that year. 

By youngster year Terry had so many girls 
mapped around bis finger that I thought he 
bad the biggest pinky in the state of Kansas. 
Dahlgren and Fran's were his main interests, 
as came to be Colleen, Bridget, and Anna, but 
not for too long. Also that year was the trip 
to D. C. for Easter Remember sleeping in the 
bus station, and the ham and eggs for 

Second class year Frosty sent Terry to 29. 
It seemed Ollie didn 't like his Molson 
paperweight. Even in 29 be found favorite 
firsties who liked to eat at Chic & Ruth's with 
him in ci\-vies. then race back to the hail to 
see who could get there tlrst. He still managed 
to see Vicky and Janet between restrictions. 
In Celestial and Wires his eyelids got more 
attention than the prof 

Tired of 29. he went to 12 mtb Nols. As they 
were bored with class, they opted to "study" 
in the room. He Cinally got his N sweater that 
year. Julia and Tracy Hood were his finds; 
remember Lucky'' The Saratoga, not air. was 
at 1009. Oh. well, that's America! 

Knowing you, Terry, has been real. Good 
luck. Swo Bra.

Chicago, Illinois 

EAS, Navy Air, Aero 

Erik came to the Boat school from Illinois 
by way of Naps. He was a firm believer in 
working hard but always liked to play just as 
hard. This made Erik a prime candidate to see 
the real world after his tlrst two years as a 
midshipman, leaving with over a 31 grade 
point and the desire to become a civilian again 

During a brief tour as a civilian. Erik worked 
as a vocational teacher for developmentally 
disabled adults. During this time he also went 
to night school taking one class per semester 
Due to the hea\y course load. Erik decided 
that he wanted to return to the academy and 
pursue his dream of becoming a Na\y pilot 
His old aero- buddies were glad to see him back 
and spent many long nights trying to 
transform him back to bis midshipman self 
again. Erik was very successful in accomplish- 
ing their goals, however, he was forced to vent 
the many frustrations in the local ring. We all 
know be could have been champ too. but be 
was determined to break his hand just to get 
out of formal inspections. Erik never wanted 
to change his civilian hair too. 

Ail kidding aside, Erik is the most likeable 
indiiidual that we've ever run across and we 
wish him and Joy all the blessings in the 
world. Good luck in the clear blue skies.

Nols came to USNA via Beacon Falls, Ct.. the

stride, and had a lush-ious Parent's Weekend 
with his friends. Bud and Jack. Ac year was 
a time to cruise; and Army a time to crash 
(Tom, get away from the edge . . . Don't worry 
TD it's only Mike and KCl Youngster year 
saw the Double-UNN major come and go, 3 
pbyaics teachers and a 1.47 Pent Rd. later. 
Nola \isited the Admiral. A positive vote gave 
Tim an introduction to the "Class"^" of '85 . . . 
Dukes. JT. Mikey. Doppler. the Chu-Cha 
twins. Iguana and Sailor Boy. Moving on to 
2/c Summer (What is Protramid. anyway"^). 
Coach Miller plus Timmy's Happy Hour = a 
4'Credit "A". Then came Geology and Creevy 
. . . Enough said. With 2/c year came Bruno 
and Gito; so tough that we made Paul's belly 
pink! Nols went the free-agent route 1/c year 
and signed with the dirty dozen. A Merry 
Christmas from NlAOO catapulted Tim into 
the final semester and, with the help of the 
Tazmanian Devil, he juat might make it to 23 

Special thanks are in order to Maj. Lasher, 
the maid at the Horizon Inn for cleaning up 
afterwards, and especially the Ac-Board for. if

Oakie finds pride in being the only twelfth 
company person to have the distinction of 
being able to say he is from the same state 
as the long gone Rat Man. Coming to the boat 
school to excel in any and every endeavor he 
undertook, it is safe to say he achieved his 
mission. Manv an afternoon we could see Bob 
m his yellow sweats, blue ball cap. and geakers 
leading the mighty Hubbard Hall fleet out 
into the Severn. Even m Dahlgren Hall he 
made his mark as an excellent "quarters" 
player. Oakie could fill not just one. but two 
of his grey gloves with recycled alcohol while 
lying under the table on the floor. As an 
outdoorsman, Oakie also excelled in being able 
to spend the night on a park bench at Hood 
while everyone else was forced to sleep 
indoors. When it came to departing on leave 
he was always the first to go using such 
excuses as a Rhodes Scholarship interview to 
get home early. Firstie year saw the Oaks move 
up to the Executive branch of the Brigade 
shouldering numerous well earned stripes on 
his uniform. In the future. Oakie will be able 
to reflect and say be survived living with the 
Company's Marine contingent: but their 
influence w^ not all for naught as Bob will 
go sub-Marine. Just remember this "crazy"

of the more well known coast-line states. 
Illinios?!? Well, at least his home town is 
named after one of our more famous beros. 
One of the few remaining NARCS in our class. 
Dave ia looking for bigger and better things 
in Subland. Remember, what goes down 
doesn't necessarily have to come up. 

Along with his B.S. in Naval Architecture, 
David is graduating with a minor in Sci-fi and 
MASH. He is also a music enthusiast and 
knows no bounds when it comes to quality 
sound. Just ask Nak. Carver. Bang, and 
Olufsen. Dave, the car's not bad. but someday 
the X 1/9 will grow up to be a full grown 
Lamborghini Just remember that when you 
are in doubt, do it. it's only money. 

Dave was one of the most dedicated Baggers 
I ever met (Lucky Baggers that is). He worked 
his way up from a lowly photographer to 
associate editor in only three years. Dave 
didn't have to march much with a piece, but 
Vm sure the camera was just as heavy, right?! 
Anyway, he became the most popular person 
in the company when he got his own phone.

Little Nimo . . . What can we say? His 
eagle-eyes scared us during Plebe Summer, 
but his computer memory kept him out of 
harm's way. Just living with the Skinman was 
enough to have him California dreamin ' before 
August rolled around. Finally the Brigade 
returned and Tommy was fortunate enough to 
end up with Cbickenhead and Captain Rack. 
Bob and Rick were soon to experience King 
Morpheus' realm to the fullest as many a 
midnight's wild-eyed conversations bad them 
laughing into their pillows . . . "He's handing 
out Oreos!" Tommy was nowhere near Ft. 
Benning when he got his airborne quals , - . 
"Ob, wow. I'm OK." Until youngster year, 
surfing had been Tom's solitary source of 
gratification, but Dahlgren fixed that. Thanks 
to Bob, Jenny became Tom's first date, then 
his first fiancee, and will become bis first bride 
as soon as the hats are in the air. Being one 
of Baine's favorite boys. Tom has never had 
a spring break, nor can he enjoy the Dog 
Zeeebra he returns to every afternoon. Three 
stripes rewarded his fanatic obsession though, 
and he assumed command of Navy's casual 
lightweights. A member of the Top 100 Club 
by direction, Tom is counting the days until 
the Wicked Witch really will be over the

it ia hoped he ctm relax. Our best wishes go

flak for Herb's mess. As a 4/C. Rob decided 
to try out for the weekday liberty (sailing) 
team. He did his time there until the 
PRODEV sailing coup & 2 bumps on the bead 
proved sailing to be a waste of time. Plebe year 
was successful with a 3.0+ CQPR so Rob 
decided to become a Mech-E. Hopes of 
continued splendiferousness were soon shot 
down by Slush, Wild Bill. Fatman. Warlord, 
Rocket, & 280-Z. Always looking for a 
challenge. Rob chose Nuc power to be his 
niche in the Navy. However, 2 years & 1/C 
cruise with MAJ "Hammerslammer" gradual- 
ly convinced Rob (o become a MARINE. 
Besides, after living with the 'Pup since 
youngster year, be & 'Dro got tired of telling 
everyone that they weren't going Corps, so 
they gave in to the big green recruiting 
machine. As a 3/C. Rob spent most of his time

One of the Wires Professors had a saying 
"Great ideas need landing gear as well as 
wings." Unfortunately, this mid out of 
Farmtown, USA ( home of all great basketball 
players) bad bad feet, and his idea to come 
to the Naval Academy crash-landed. Fortuna- 
tely, be desired a SWO pin instead of the 
wings of an eagle which suited him just fine. 
The start of bis first semester of academics 
took this pseudo- basket bail player quite by 
surprise. But, he recovered to eventually brush 
shoulders with the upper half of his class. 

While at the Naval Academy, Steven 
pursued such diverse fields as Spanish, 
Economics. The Rack (bis hardest course)

the desired reception came in). His Company 
Officer even joined him on occasion to watch 
Jenny, Greg and Arica. Eventually, that great 
scourge, women caught up to him. and on 
Fridays you could see bim on 1-95 to Pbilly. 

His summer cruises were something else. YP 
0N2 taught him how to be professional aboard 
a YP and offer cokes to damsels in distress. 
His first class Caribbean cruise (He was set 
up by a friend m PRODEV) sent him off with 
7 other Mids who knew as much Spanish as 
be did. Somehow, he came back to the States 
with 3 addresses, among other things. (He also 
came back fluent, it's amazing what men will 

He'll be soaking up rays in Long Beach. Just 
remember Major Hannigan. Ricky Adger and 
the weanie wars. 

Gerard Michael Vandenberg 
The Wedge, Salty, Spard 
New Canton, Virginia 
Naval Architecture, Submarines 

Coming from a small Virginia town didn't 
necessarily mean that Gerard was inexper- 
ienced in the ways of military life. He came 
to USNA as a distinguished graduate of Fork 
Union Military Academy (old Fork U. to his 
friends), a place where men are men and there 

Haling successfully "cruised" through plebe 
year, the "Wedge" (see photo) easily made the 
transition to a full fledged youngster Many 
late nights were spent planning and perpetrat- 
ing "spirit-related activities". He. Flounder, 
and Meso also spent a great deal of time 
refining this coordination, timing, and 
accuracy as members of the NFES (Noxema 
Foam Explosive Squad). 

Roddy was finally challenged in bis third 
vear. If he wasn 't gaJivanting about the 
foredeck of a racing yacht, he was contemplat- 
ing the long-term effects of the Navier-Stokes 
theory on the aerodynamics of the navy's 
fastest cruisers. His remaining time was spent 
pursuing his bobby of sport game fishing. He 
and the Gup (abort for Guppy, aka The 
Woman in Black) stuck it out through thick 
and thin. Just remember, driving privileges 

After four years, if there is just one idea, one 
underlying principle that will sustain Gerard 
in the years ahead, it would have to be the 
phrase . . . "Porsche . . . there is no substitute. "

Daytona Beach, Florida 
Physics, Nuclear Power 

Dave's 3tAy here baa been somewbat more 
relaxed than the norm. Between D&B. night 
caps, dub 21 and pin striped suits, this 
tendency often led to trouble. As far back as 
plebe year, it was "Everybody shove off — 
except Bunker. " Hailing from Daytona Beach, 
bia regional loyalties weren't without their 
coat, as hJB roommate can attest In spite of 
that, however, it didn't take him long to 
discover that all roads lead to Rome. Rooming 
with Dave has been a pleasure — usually. 
When threatened with possible wedgification, 
be didn't hesitate to follow up on his own 
threat, "I'm gonna hurt 'cha!"Beer was always 
his friend, with sleep running a close second. 
This initiated some bizarre rituals, such as the 
"Dirty Pup" song, sung just before sleep. 
Never a preppy type. Dave is looking for a 
chance to get out of the alligator Navy and 
back to Nukea. However it goes, Dave, we 
know you'll never be out of shape, between the 
12 oz. curls and the long runs to Rome. 


Eugene Giles Brady, III 


Memphis, Tennessee 

Naval Architect, Nuclear Power 

Gene drifted into Crabtown from Memphis, 
which we were constantly reminded was the 
home of Elvis. Plebe year really cramped his 
style, and it wasn't until youngster year that 
we all saw his tendency for skirt chasing and 
buying new stereo equipment every two weeks, 
a practice that made him very popular with 
the underclass, who he constantly supplied 
with his hand-me-downs. In Dahlgren, where 
he became a regular. Gene bad the great 
advantage over his shipmates of not having to 
drink to enjoy the use of beer goggles, thus 
sooner opening the field for a broader range 
of opportunities. How could he lose with lines 
like. "Can I have your picture for my blotter?" 

After a cruise on a grey ship and a leisurely 
sail to Bermuda, Gene decided that submar- 
ines were the way to go and promptly signed 
up. What he will be like after a three month 
FBM patrol with no women is anybody's 
guess. To end with a phrase from a well known 
Dahlgren girl, "Hey Cruiser. Trip, Gene, 
whoever, " have a good life in whatever you do.

Waynesboro, Virginia 

Mechanical Engineering, 


Mark came to us that one day in July as 
an energetic (hyperactive), innocent, bald- 
chested young kid from the megatropoUs of 
Waynesboro. Virginia where the streets are 
numbered from one to three. He did well here 
at the academy, though in the beginning he 
had some trouble with his inability to "lock 
on" ... Beep ... Beep ... He had high 
aspirations of quarterbacking the Navy 
offense, but those high squeaky frequencies 
just couldn't make it to the wide-outs. The 
Glee Club, however, pulled through with a 
position in their line-up . . . just check bis 
SCAMP sheets. But seriously, after four years 
of bard work and dedication, he earned the 
N-star award as an intelligent, hard hitting, 
and "swift" DB, not to mention his three 
stripes. Mark survived the Hawaiian excursion 
(How 'bout that $15.00 beer??) and entered 
youngster year in pursuit of "the" chest hair 
and the Mech-E department Needless to say, 
he faired better academically than biologically. 
Second Class year brought along varsity ball, 
the Rocket, booby traps, daiquiris and the 
queen thereof, a dying Valiant, but still no 
chest bair. Memories from Lauderdale include 
oiling down and heaving up. Recovery came 
abruptly, and by the Ring Dance, be certainly 
did have the ability to pound . . . and pound 
. . . and pound. All that coaching sure did pay 
off, huh Mark?! First Class year and still no 
hair - oh well, "grass just doesn't grow on a 
playground." An exception to Murphy's Law, 
Mark, you are a sure success as an NFO; after 
all, how can you miss with that luck and 
disposition? See you in Florida!

He's no gentleman . . . But he's no doorknob, 
either! Bus bails from Kendall, N Y., which ia 
no great accomplishment, but we let him hang 
around us anyway. Plebe year Bus was the 
model plebe. His roommates made it easy for 
him to make friends. No one knew Bus 
youngster year, but second class year be 
discovered television, which occupies 90% of 
his time. The other W^ is spent sleeping and 
drinking. Studying? Sometimes, maybe. First 
class year Bus went schizoid, becoming Capt. 
Kirk, the Road Warrior, the Great Santini, 
Rodney Dangerfield, and Hanover Fiste, to 
name a few. Bus managed to stay in shape first 
class year, even though he had a car, by 
continuing to walk everywhere he went Yes. 
walking is one of Bus's favorite pastimes; to 
town, 7-11 . . . he even tried to walk on water 
once. Barring any unforeseen events. Bus 
should have a brilliant future with the 
Minnesota Center for Sleep Studies. He's 
currently experimenting with 3 hours of sleep 
per night, as well as the benefit of sleeping in 
class. Bus will go on to the Marine Corps sifter 
graduation, and our best wishes go with him

Mechanical Engineering, Naw 


Leaving bis day's as a farmboy, the Depper 
left Wilmington, Del. and came to the boat 
school as a "tourist" (Hey Deppe, wanna buy 
the place'') \^nth a lot of heart and very little 
luck. His determination pulled him through 
the summer, but fate took over the first day 
of Ac-vear when reading the paper was more 
important than going to quarters. It didn't 
talce long for bis leadership qualities to shine 
through as he honored the Mess Night with 
his presence as a "bea\y" Mr Vice. iWe know 
. . we carried him back ) The next summer. 
Big D had his eyes set on a Pearl Harbor 
cruise, but his lousy impersonation of Evil 
Knievel left him with a cast and a first round 
pick on the YP Squadron. Youngster year 
brought the first of his many infamous M.E. 
profs, but his grades survived and so did his 
liberty . . . many a novena was said while 
confessing the St. Joe's road trip. Second class 
vear brought an "impressive" patvh to the 
Dep 's SDB sleeve; however, due to the 
"pressure" of the Rocket, be was seen more 
in the ward room than at Franny O's. Big D 
was able to overcome the Rocket and, against 
all odds, even found a Ring Dance dale, but 
not before a run-in with a tree and a swing 
in S.C. Not all of bis luck was bad l/c year

Louisville, Ohio 
Math, Surface Line 

Mark came to us from Louisville. OH. of 
course well known for its high waves and deep 
seas. The word which would best describe 
Mark's pie be year is "sweat". Then a strange 
phenomena happened third class year when he 
joined the grease and grime duet from NJ. Of 
course Mark paid dearly for this change (Hey 
Mark, can I borrow $100 by Fn'^) A world 
traveler, he enjoyed many road trips with the 
glee club on weekends. This ail came to an 
abrupt end when be decided that he wanted 
to meet all the officers of mother B personally 
, , . and what a better way to do this then to 
have a few musters a day in smoke ball with 
the OOD. Yes. l/c year was not a good year, 
at least not at the start. Yet he surx-ived all 
bis problems with the help of bis closest 
friend, the new Apple He. If nothing else. 
Mark did become very efficient on his

Gianguili (that's like two girls names) 
arrived here at the "Boat School" with a 
nine-iron in one hand and an "Iron-City" in 
the other. "Gi, get your hands out of the 
cradle, you robber!" Seriously though, Gi was 
alwavs good with girls because be was quite 
the conversationalist. He was always offering 
them some "food for thought." Not only was 
Gi a smooth talker, but he was also quite a 
muscular Hgure. "That comes from carrying 
the world on your shoulders all the time, hub 
Gi?! I guess another one of Jeffs tricks was 
the way his cup runneth over with emotion. 
Something as simple as a chicken sandwich 
would always bring tears to his eyes, and we 
mean always! On the other hand, be was 
known to blow a gasket or two every now and 
then. "Hey. watch out for those whisk 
brooms!" Jeff was also a natural born leader; 
be even earned four stripes on Brigade staff 
Not only that, he led us all, as youngsters, on 
a revolt against colors! Jeff, you ringleader 
you. Well, we could go on and on, from Coastie

Izzy came to USNA from one of the better 
residentiaJ diatricts of Egg Harbor, majoring 
in football and girls at famous Absegami High. 
One of your standard mids, Izzy would go to 
school during the week, but had an allergic 
reaction to staying in the hall on the 
weekends. His fun -lo\-ing spirit was evident in 
a variety of areas, including company spirit, 
yearly trips to Puerto Rico, and diligence in 
helping our nation's economy — by holding a 
credit card in almost every major store in the 
Baltimore-Annapolis area. But, all good things 
must come to an end ... a special girl at Notre 
Dame managed to reel bim in. Yet, when Izzy 
put his mind to some important task, be 
always came through with flying colors (well, 
most of the time). Although unable to grace 
the backseat of a naval aircraft, he will 
definitely make the most of his MSO tour in 
the surface community. Good luck to a great

Marine Engineering, Navy Air 

Sid came to us that one day in July as a 
Skoal dippin'. Suthan speakin'. knife packin' 
good ole txty from B.F., S.C. We all wondered 
about Sid's Plebe Summer; he bad hair 
everywhere but on his head — that buzz cut 
made him look like one of Jeri's kids. Sid 
breezed through plebe year and found himself 
6000 miles away in Hawaii — where be had 
trouble hanging on to his flip-flops. With the 
new youngster rate, Sid was quick to capitalize 
on a good thing . . . Dahlgren beer and red 
headed women. The latter of which caused 
him to "go down" under the conduct system 
because she wouldn 't "come down " out of the 
clouds over Essex Skypark. Speaking of 
clouds, we were always in one as to which 
school Sid actually pledged his allegiance. 
Let's just say there was more orange and white 
in bis room than there were gold and blue. Go 
Tigers! Second class year came around fast 
and Sid signed on for a seven year hitch. It 
seemed that the red head signed on for a hitch 
of her own. She was still around. Why, she was 
even driving Sid's car . . . in the yard no less! 
"Pardon me Red, are you a midshipman?" 
That's O.K. Sid, we didn't mind driving you 
all over town. Well First Class year and Red's 
still here- Is that what they mean by a "lifer" 
Sid? Could be! 

But seriously, Sid is a kind, generous, and 
caring individual whom we all respect and 
admire. Maybe that's why be did so well as 
our first set Company Commander. Good 
Luck down in P-Cola; you'll need that "Shade

living only two miles from Canoe U. 3/c year 
came and so did weekends . . . where 's K. T. ? 
He was the only third class in the company 
to put in a chit to request driving in the two 
mile limit. K. T. never lacked style. He would 
have won the company GQ award, but we 
didn't have one of those. 2/c year saw the 
beginning of K. T. 's Tazi Service as he would 
uae dad's car to cart the "gang" around on 
weekends. Kevin had a lot of tales about the 
harem of women that were chasing after bim 
... we never saw any of them ? . . . we believe 
he mentioned something about mids having no 
class . . . Naaaah! First class year. Kevin went 
from platoon commander to company 
academic officer, a job he really appreciated 
because it brought him so much closer to our 
company officer. K. T. will do 0-TAY in the

For the duration of bis four years here. 
Perry has been an invisible man to most. To 
the rest of us, he's something of an enigma. 
He's the only one of us to have kept the same 
girl for all four years, the only gun- toting 
neo-fascist to come from Missouri since Daniel 
Boone, and the only "music lover" who can 
play The Silver Beatles and Devo in the same 
beat. As for his dream of flying in the 
bombardier seat of a Uve B-17. will NFO 
training succeed where a life membership in 
the CAF failed? Or is it just the wings be 
wants? Although he hardly needs them for 
catching the ladies — besides his fiancee, 
there's at least one other who pines after him. 
Who can forget "He's @!Xff engaged?!!" In 
spite of his idiosyncracies. he's always ready 
to help a classmate, loaning him one thang 
(sic) or another. And who could forget the 
bedlam in the wee hours of the morning as 
even the toughest of roommates fell afoul of 
bis favorite tactics — the dreaded chin swipe 
or the last-ditch tickle. Perry's sure to make 
a big bit with those who really see him, at least 
as long as he keeps receiving those chow 
packages. Good luck in the wild blue yonder.

washing anymore. Bnon ended the year by 
eating some early morning breakfasts for 
blowing demo in the room. The weekends of

changing the numbers on the wall. Second 
class year, injuries kept Jeff from running and 
Karen tried to nurse htm back to health but 
in the end. the differences between Jeff and 
Al became too great. With more time on his 
hands, hops and Pedro started to rule. Bruce

Tippy, the great soccer player from 
England, Oregon. Syracuse, Blacksburg, 
Chicago, Long Island? His first mistake was 
living with Bob plebe year, who convinced him 
that Playboy was better than Proceedings, and 
beer was better than gatoraid. Too bad his 
body didn't take it so well. He knew Ralph 
well! Too well. He had a rank to match. 34 
out of 33. Thanks Tim. Youngster year also 
afforded him the time to play with high 
explosives and spend Easter Break on duty. 
Disney world was no vacation either, after 
getting booted from space mountain. Junior 
year brought voo goo and nubies. Albright also 
became a good friend. How about the doc's 
'stang at Hood and 6 weekends of running 
from security. Bruce parties and the Go Gos 
finished off the year. Then he met Blue 
Thunder, or should we say the 7 cylinder 
wonder. Why drive when you csn walk. If that

"Hey Bob, what's that smeW" Bob was never 
at a loss for words in Dahlgren either. "Oh. 
you don't want to dance. Well, I had to go to 
the bathroom anyway. " 3/c year was also the 
first time Bob was thrown out of Hood, but 
not the last. Youngster year saw Bob, along 
with Tip and Woj. develop the good grades 
theory. He had the bus receipts to prove it. 
Bob started 2/ c year by joining the EMBC. He 
also developed a close relationship with the 
company officer "What do you mean I'm 
through here. Major?" So much for 2/c Mess 
Night. Bob spent a lot of time at Hood. He 
found a garage and parked his car. First class 
summer Bob changed his initials to P W. 
Take many plane rides, Bob? Can I hold a 
sword? Club Coblentz was Bob's ending, but 
at least he went out dressed well. He still 
managed to log many a night at the OClub

that his mother still did his laundry at age 21, 
or deny that "The Land of Make Believe" 
wasn't just a hot piece by Chuck Mangione. 
Pssst - don 't tell anyone but Mike likes knives. 
He loves 'em! He's not put off by leather 
either. I was personally disappointed to 
become his roommate only to find out that his 
favorite expression is "not now, I have a 
headache. " Mike could always hoot with the 
owls, scream with the eagles 'til quarters, and 
dive with the demons into the blue lagoon 
immediately thereafter, il won't tell anyone 
that you worked only 3 days a week for an 
entire semester.) Don't look at bis informal 
picture: there's no such thing as a junk- food 
guru. And where's the diet 7-up? "I know it's 
here somewhere," (all-purpose phrase). Hey 
Mikey, congrats! - not bad for a social deviant, 
eh ? Godspeed!

Peter Andrew Nardi 


North Miami Beach, Florida 

Mathematics, Surface Line 

Pete bails from "Little Cuba" better known 
as Miami. Fla. He made a double name for 
himself piebe summer when be became known 
as Mr Nardi, Nardi. Pete was a pioneer in 
many ways, becoming tbe only guy to evade 
Black Sunday, and tbe first to wear a Japanese 

During his first Army-Na\y game. Pete 
discovered bis reai roots, when he learned that' 
getting trashed gave him Chinese eyes. Being 
a loyal American, Nards firmly resolved to 
party on cokes from then on. 

Youngster year Nards got "married" to 
Jeanne, and happily remained so the rest of 
his time at USNA. He also managed to settle 
into the "youngster syndrome". 

Second class year sa* Nards getting into 
"televised education." as his name appeared 
in the Star Trek log more and more 
frequentlv. He managed to purchase a "rice 
burner" with his car loan, and it was soon 
baptized by the boys. During this year be also 
moved his base of operations from Miami to 
Arnold, spending most of bis leave time there. 

Coasting into first class year. Nards spent 
most of his weekends at "dad's" house helping 
bis roommate "beef up" bis car. During the 
lucid intervals when the wife was home, Nards 
disappeared far from sight but be always 
managed to remain one of the boys. 

After graduation, Nards plans to be a 
surface liner, destined for a Spruance-class 
destroyer. From his roommate of four years, 
thanks for being there. Beat of lack. 


Christian Thomas Noah 


Rohnert Park, California 

Electrical Engineering, Nuclear 


The computer whiz kid hails from aunny 
California. He was shy and innocent when be 
first arrived, but being aror.nd tbe likes of 
Perry. Horace, and Dave changed all that. He's 
still a good kid, but just knows how to have 

Chris was tbe first person in tbe whole 
company to have hia o»ti personal computer 
here. He buys tbe svstems and then takes 
them apart and builds them from scratch. If 
be wasn 't here, he 'd probably be putting IBM 
out of business. However, as be got more 
computers, he got less hair, and we didn't let 
him forget it. 

True love came in second class year, and it 
wasn 't much longer after that when be decided 
to go nuke power Chris is an Electrical 
Engineer in tbe top one-fifth of his class, so 
there was little doubt he would get selected 
for nuke. 

Just one more thing to add to his high 
character Chris has one of tbe most beautiful 
cars I've ever seen. Chris will have a lot of fun 
marrying Robin and driving around in bis red 
Formula Firebird to wherever tbe nuclear 
submarine force directs him. Good luck in tbe 
years ahead. 


Kurt Brian Olsen 

Annapolis, Md. 
Applied Science, Seals 

Kurt graduated from H.S. and came all of 
two miles to USNA to follow his family tree. 
Starting as a plebe with no neck, he spent bis 
time worrying about road trips in tbe Volvo. 
Most of his time in tbe hall was spent brawling 
with bis roommates, destroying everything. 
Mongo was always willing to go drinking - he 
even offered to get free drinks, tbe problem 
was he usually got them while everyone else 
got charged double. Kurt moved on in his 
career to make trips to PSU and check the 
grass conditions with his pan ts. He also 
invested in a Jeep to be like bis fellow 
Annapoli red-necks, but the jeep came to an 
end when be helped Jeff fly hke "Superman ". 
He always cared about Jeff even when tbe 
shelf and speaker fell on Jeffs head. Kurt's 
first question was if his sentimental bottle 
broke. Kurt moved on in his later years to take 
care of all his friends by having the house 
microwave always ready while tbe driveway 
became a parking lot on weekends. Mongo was 
also good at catching women too, he had many 
of them and even got presents from some such 
as bottles, red roots, and free meals. A 'vette 
was next in line and it was very popular with 
the local police as it gave them chances for 
chase tests in their cars. Kurt's other 
endeavors included such things as rumbles in 
Main St.. fighting the PSU football team and 
acting as a taxi-agent to Q-Town. Kurt is now 
off to become a Seal and we are all sure tbe 
"tough guy" will do well - we will all miss him 
especially Spoon. 


Marco Antonio Pagnanelli 
Huntington Beach, California 
General Engineering, Surface 

Marco arrived at Annapolis from sunny 
Southern California in tbe summer of 1980. He 
bad a somewhat difficult time adjusting to the 
rigors of plebe life. He was ranked last and 
next to tbe last by both of bis plebe summer 
squad leaders. His grease chits contained 
many phrases like; "continues to be a sweat. 
. . . chokes on basic plebe rates. " For Marco, 
plebe athletics brought him adversity in many 
shapes and sizes. Most of those adverse sizes 
ranged from 6'-4' to 6-5' in stature and 
weighed close to 250 pounds. He was used and 
abused as the scout team quarterback that 
serviced the varsity team each day. But plebe 
year passed and better times for Marco 
arrived. As a youngster, in the first Navy game 
of the season against the Citadel, he scored 
two touchdowns. With football rolling, 
academic troubles began tapping his resources. 
Marco then switched majors from chemistry 
to general engineering and tbe academics from 
that point on went well (despite S-3 Vining 
bombardment). Football continued to go very 
well for Marco as be traveled over moat of the 
country competing against some of the top 
teams in the nation. He scored touchdowns 
and threw for touchdowns. But it all ended 
where it began, against the Citadel, as a 
broken leg prematurely finished his fine career 
as a Navy quarterback. Now Marco will return 
to sunny Southern California in tbe t 
of 1984 as a SWO bound ensign.

Good old Spoon came down from the hills 
of WiUiamaport to follow in poppa Hirk's 
footsteps. He atarted plebe year, but bad more 
liberty then, than as a firsty. Yeah. Spoon's 
first priority was to stay a redneck, ao be got 
his jeep. His jeep has brought him many good 
times, even wondering who was driving. Only 
problem with the jeep was when Ponae wanted 
to go to McDonald's. The big thing in Spoon 's 
life though were his many All America Teams. 
Most noteworthy was golf, but unknown to 
many he was also on the two week 150 team, 
king rag team, expert sniffer, NCAA wrestling 
champ, and moat of all the Bar Stool Diving 
Champ, he got a nice noae as a trophy. Spoon 
even spent one weekend at PSV as the 
placekick holder for the Patriots. Well, a 
certain truck driver came into this story and

Jeffrey Thomas Ringel 


Maplewood, New Jersey 

Operation Analysis, Marine Air 

When Jeff first arrived to USNA we all 
knew we were in for something . . . exactly 
what we didn 't know. Being a former NAPster 
Ringel had bis military stuff down pat. With 
his ever present 5 o'clock shadow, Ringel 
applied his NAPster training and the help of 
fellow Jersey boys and survived plebe year. 
During the week Jers spent bis hours working 
out, studying, stopping intruders (jspecially 
Marine Officers), and being room referee . 
how anyone could calmly stand through a 
constant barrage of books, lamps, shoes . . . we 
will never know. His weekends were spent on 
shopping aprees as a plebe, punching friends 
in bars, "gree coffee and a cheese sandwich", 
and drinking Guineas. Even Jeffs boxing 
debut couldn't convince him and be was 
always throwing punches at everything and 
everyone. His most fascinating trick was the 
flying act from Kurt 's jeep . . . the only 
problem was that he bad to land. After a few 
weeks as Frankenstein the Jersey Redneck was 
back to dancing and balancing on the third 
floor banister. His roommate loyalty was never 
questioned, who else would take the full force 
of a fallen speaker to the bead just to aave a 
sentimental bottle. Jeff will always be 
remembered as a hardworking, dedicated 
individual that could build up your morale 
even when bia was down. With his attitude of 
"the sen-ice is the greateat" Jeffrey has what 
it takes to be a Marine.

Frank hails from San Antonio, Tx., merely 
a stones throw from the Mexican border . . . 
so that's how he got here. 

Plebe year Frank discovered the pleasures 
of beer and indulged wholeheartedly into tta 
endeavors. Always an athletic person, Frank 
tried a variety of sports including handball, 
ISO's, lacroase, and powerlifting. 

Youngater year Frank discovered a new joy 
. . . women. Dalghren ball aoon became bia 
favorite spot. However, none of the relation- 
ships be made lasted very long. It wasn't until 
2/c year that he met "the nurse". He was 
sitting in the bottom of a glass of beer in the 
Little Campus Inn when be saw her through 
the haze. It was then that he realized there 
was more to life than studying, working hard, 
and becoming a lifetime member of the

From the beginning. Frank knew be was 
destined to possess a "muscle car". After 
seeing the "road warrior" he realized that 
more than ever He just had to have a

to us all the way from San Antone We knew 
he was a strange bird right away, and didn't 
waste much time getting him into the hospital. 
We figured he came so far without touching 
the ground that his wings must have been 
tired, or something. T made it through all of 
plebe year with a 2-man room. Believe me. it 
wasn 't because he had huge-head. Right! After 
plebe year, T lost touch with reality. He knew 
only "Mech. E". (in the biblical sense, of 
course.) He can do the problems ok. but I 
would be very careful if I were going to use 
any equipment with his signature on it. T 
spent most of his free time playing make- 
believe on various unknown or unheard of 
planets. But it 's ok T - we 'II give you your very 
own planet (for an undisclosed amount of 
make-believe cash and a promise never to

Woj impressed us all plebe 
performing his own eye surgery on the drill 
field. When school started and the beer began 
to flow, Woj very scientifically proved that the 
shower isn't just for washing anymore. 
Youngster cruise found Woj in those islands 
that we took from Spain in the Western 
Pacific with a wife and kid. She even wrote 
back if he gave her the money for stamps. Ac 
year brought free beer in Dahlgren. and 
showed that you can blow demo without an 
EMBC qual card. He brought bis machine 
back second class summer and provided 
transportation for many tine road trips. On 
one of these we found, among other things, 
that Hopkins. Hood, and headlights don't mix. 
By the end of second class year Paul threw

through just about anything including

semester and got away nith itl and those 
Borroaall lectures with a little help from tbe

that the academy wasn't like the catalog said 
It would be, so he did bis best to set it straight. 
He began Plebe summer by modifying a 
famous phrase to. "Sir, request permission not 
to bilge my roommate" Mike sur\-ived Plebe 
summer despite all of bis efforts not to. In the 
academic year, he established his authority in 
the field of automobiles by telling 1/C CJ to 
"SHUT- UP" during a discussion on US vs Jap 
cars. Cars were everything to bim; there were 
cars on tbe walls and on the blotters. Of course 
women were also of big importance to Mike. 
There was Miss Ml. his hometown flame who 
earned tbe VT-3J sticker on her picture. Miss

Ralph came to USNA from New Orleans 
with three primary objectives: 1) to become an 
airline pilot 2) to buy a Porsche 3) to read 
more paperbacks than any other Mid before 
him. Plebe year Ralph concentrated on 
reading paperbacks and finding ways to miss 
as many early morning saim practices as 
possible. He also learned the hard way that 
swimming talents do not necessarily apply to 
gymnastics. An English major was not a hard 
choice for Ralph considering his addiction to 
reading. Youngster year FiaJph continued to 
read and swim, but he also discovered Jackie, 
Bob Hope helped to foreshadow Ralph's 
engagement by broadcasting his romance on 
national t.v. During his second class year 
Ralph survived an Ac-board, lost his chance 
to fly, quit swimming, and bought his Porsche. 
By taking out two loans Ralph began his 
tradition of debt. This tradition exposed itself 
first class year in the form of an engagement 
ring, new paint, tires, wheels, and a new car 
stereo system. Service selection came and 
Ralph swallowed his threats of "Canada, 
before Surface line" and chose a destroyer 
Ralph's last major hurdle was the PCR, and 
he cleared it with style, earning himself three 
additional tries at passing it. Ralph, fair winds 
and following seas to you, and keep striving 
for the maximum Visa limit.

Al's nickname, Eddie, came early in his 
career as a mid, due to his incredible 
resemblence to Eddie Munster. Al came to 
Canoe U. from the fleet, and Plebe Summer 
made him wonder why. Al found academics no 
problem, taking 25 hours a semester, only Al 
could never remember where he put his watch, 
wallet, calculator, etc. As a youngster. Al took 
to vociferous correction of the CO. CDR. 
Record holder for most tours for one slip of 
the brain, "that's the bottom tine." Al's study 
of physics enabled him to speak at the speed 
of light, too bad no one understood. Al

Always knew you wanted to be a EE. Al had

Tommy D. gave up the rolling hills of Jersey 
to join the Fourteenth company here at

anyway - . . watch out Tommy: last time I

Georgia! Tow was well Jcnown for his "cocky" 
strut, his fluorescent red hair I'a la Frank 
Perdue) and for the most obnoxious laugh ever 
to decorate the face of the Earth. HE was a 
great lover of the outdoors, especially snakes 
(not in the old sleeping bag. though!) and who 
can forget that scenic canoe trip domi 1-95. 
better known as "Deliverance 11" Tom 
managed to juggle a strenuous EE major, a 
rocky if sometimes hilarious social life, and a 
minor in auto mechanics with the infamous 
Audi, whose gas mileage far exceeded its net 
worth. He also tried his hand (quite 
successfully) at being Company commander 
and Basketball coach - how 'bout those 
Brigade champs' He accomplished this by 
being one of the most level-headed people 
around and. despite having reached the age of 
21 without even being able to spell 'tact', one

Greg hails from Severna Park. He was 
squared away enough Plebe year to escape 
most of the upper-class' attention. His sports 
periods were spent exploring the finer points 
of the back stroke for the varsity snim team 
He later moved on to varsity crew If there 
were one word to describe Greg, it would be 
intense. No matter how tired, he always found 
enough energy to get in an extra work-out or 
finish a homework assignment. Sleep was low 
on bis list of priorities First class year saw him 
marching tall in front of the company, 
wielding a sword, as a platoon leader. 

Mr Pipps and Route 3 — The way wasn't 
clear that night. Thirty dollars was a small 
price to pay. Don't worry there are no signs 
at 30.000 feet A cruise on the world's only 
active battleship con\inced Greg that being a

Herndon, Virginia

Kurt spent 4 years at the Academy trying 
hard not to be a Midshipman. From plebe 
summer song leader to platoon leader he 
turned out to be a stellar mid. Varsity football 
kept him busy and on the road in the fall 
semesters, but he was always ready for a party. 
The result of these massive consumptions was 
always the same, trouble: scaring young 
children, trying to kill guitar players, grabin' 
some at the "Vous", visiting the Commandant 
at 4 A.M., running from the jimmylegs, 
hassling the rowing patrol "girls wear blouses". 
3 class A 'a in one night and EMBC. After the 
party Kurt could always look forward to a 
night of puke and a day of comatose. A .86 
first semester second class year almost ended 
his stay at old USNA. luckily be had friends 
in high places (the football rep.) His no sweat 
attitude made him a favorite among his 
classmates. Between him and his roommate 
they could always find a good reason not to 
study, "if I study now I'll be too tired toatudy 
later". Tbanz. you made this mickeymouse 
operation bearable. I could always count on 
you to put it in the right perspective "it just 
doean 't matter ". They tried to make good little 
squids of us and then gave us stripes anyway. 
I know that somewhere down the road you'll 
find that "low stess job" (baiting hooks sounds 
good) just don 't loose Miss Donna along the 
way. Until then, "get hot" and "make sure" 
you do a good job in the USMC. If we could 
do it all over again? You can pay me now or 
pay me later. At least we won't have to pay 
later. Thani again for the memories. 1 couldn 't 
have made without you.

Brad came to the Naval Academy for the 
education and the discipline. He managed to 
get the education (barely), but he deCmitely 
missed out on the discipline. After a 
horrendous start plebe year, (sorry for the 
bilge buddy) Brad developed the winning 
formula to get him through: the rank. How 
could they bug you if you're asleep? If be 
wasn't in the rack. Brad was always up for a 
party or a good bull session - anything but 
study! Except for a brief time when he thought 
he was an alcoholic, he was the number one 
drinking partner among his companymates. A 
promising career in soccer and lacrosse was cut 
short when Brad blew bis knee out youngster 
year. His constant good cheer was an 
inspiration to us all and he could always be 
counted on for some good advice. "Don't 
sweat, do it later. " Although Brad wanted to 
be a good midshipman and do things the Navy 
way. be always seemed to get himself into 
trouble. How was he supposed to know the 
wall be jumped over at 4 am was the Supe's? 
EMBC here I come. Academy life would have 
been much easier for Brad if he could have 
found the right girl - not that he didn't try 
his best, moat girls just needed more time than 
he did. Brad did manage to scrape his knees 
a few times though. Well we made it through. 
I don't know how, it's been great despite what 
they tried to cram down our throats - stripe 
me please! Thanks for the cool bead - / needed 
it. Here's to the future and the low stress job 
(baiting fishhooks in Hawaii) I know some day 
we '11 get it. Get hot and do well in the Corps. 
Thanks for the memories. It's been great.

Mark left the shores of sunny Lake Tahoe 
to become a sub jockey. Unfortunately, Mark 
decided that subs just weren't his bag after 
youngster cruise when he not only lost his tan, 
but also hia girlfriend. Mark managed to row 
crew and get good grades plebe year, but 
youngster year the "mountainman" decided it 
was better to chase women (Susy Socialist) 
and go skiing in Maine than to sit in the crew 
shells over spring break. With second class 
year on the horizon, Mark met and instantly 
fell in love with the first Maryland coed that 
he met. and she managed to get him fried for 
PDA twice in the same week. What a team - 
The Lettuce Woman and Mark! At tailgaitors 
they proved to be the craziest partiers we had 
' at least 'til the keg was tapped and the 
charcoal was lit, then they bad to leave. The 
Lettuce Woman is so loyal she'd follow him 
anywhere (tuition's cheaper in Florida 
anyway). Mark has boated many ski trips for 
the 14th Company ski bums. We wish we could 
remember them, we know Mark remembers 
New Year's second class year. Mark wanted us 
to have a good time ao he put his boots on 
and met us at the car at the end of the day. 
Mark is an expert on RX-7's and bridges, and 
joining the two in Ohio. Mark has been a great 
friend for four years, and we wish him the best 
of luck in Naval Aviation. We'll ail be together 
soon in Pcola.

Phil took Plebe Year by storm, developing 
close professional ties with the firsties. Phil set 
the standards by shining his shoes for Gino 
and playing air guitar for Golf Company. After 
being cut from the baseball team, Phil began 
to train for the indoor track team, running 
around in his underwear screaming. "I'm 18 
Danny. I'm 18. " Youngster year gave Phil the 
leisure to show us all what a suave guy he 
really ia. He poured beer on a girl's head 
because she didn't want to dance, and then 
challenged half the bar to a fight. Phil's fierce 
competitive spirit knew no bounds. On the 
field or playing quarters be gave it hia all (Ack! 
Barf! N. D. '83) If Phil couldn't win real 
games, he made up his own. Stump the Star. 
Crutch Walk. Inside Elbow. His relationahips 
with girls were a lot like him; all short, but 
all special. First class year showed Phil's 
outstanding brand of leadership. He success- 
fully completed first semester as CAO 
discharging all his duties from his bed. 
Seriously, Phil was a great guy to have on your 
side, especially if you were winning. Phil hopes 
to pursue a career in Naval Aviation. 
Wherever he goes we know be will continue 
to do well and be a good friend to all. —

He took over second set plebe detail and led

If you weren't aware that Rhode Island is 
the biggest, greatest, and most athletic state 
in the union, you haven't met Rob. Bob came 
to the academy with great athletic potential 
which eventually got channeled into Nth 
company sports where he contributed greatly 
to a couple of Brigade Champ teams (Rob on 
fire for the half-court shot). He had the 
incredible ability to sense the mood that 
everyone else was in and be just the opposite, 
thus earning the name "cosine. " His competi- 
tiveness made him a glutton for punishment 
in such intellectual games as chess, backgam- 
mon and nerf basketball, and spent numerous 
late nights losing to the Dog in our room 
youngster year. Rob picked Systems in order 
to make bis stay here as difficult as possible, 
but he proved equal to the task even though 
sometimes it was touch and go. I guess all 
those late nights where worth it Rob lived by 
bis two basic rules: U Rob is always right, 
2> if Rob is wrong, see rule ffl. Rob was right 
about one thing, his choice of a wife - Nathalie 
may be just the rectifier he needs. After the 
eye dept of Bancroft medical dashed his 
hopes to be an NFO by insisting that the big 
fly was 3-dimensional Rob decided to hightail 
it to the surface Navy, which probably didn't 
upset the folks or the wife too much. His quick 
wit. good humor and natural competitivenas

in the Navy and beyond. The Boys and I all

Detroit, Michigan 

Chemistry, Surface Line 

Johnny came to the Academy from the East 
side of Detroit, where he learned to appreciate 
Mo-town music and the value of being a good 
runner. Always athletic, John started plebe 
year on the crew team, but quickly returned 
to running on the batt track and cross-country 
teams. His love for blisters, aching joints and 
general self-abuse culminated in the successful 
completion of the Marine Corps Marathon 
during Youngster year. His determination 
showed in academics as well. When droves of 
our classmates abandoned the rigors of 
chemistry for the haven of phi-sci. Johnny 
decided that some sleep and free time were a 
small price to pay for the mastery of polymers. 
John led our company as underclass and was 
our Company Commander when it was S4'a 
turn to run plebe summer. But all work and 
no play was certainly not a favorite saying of 
John's as some young ladies in the area can 
attest Nothing could keep Johnny off the ski 
slopes, or stop him from having a good time, 
or keep him from giving a friend a helping 

John was torn between a lot of things for

Richard J. Laufer 


Severna Park, Maryland 

Systems Engineering, 

Lauvs learned the USNA system as a senior 
at Severna Park High School, while his 
brother was a plebe. Rich memorized Reef 
Points long before 1-Day. and since he was a 
scholar in the classroom, he was able to sink 
into anonymity. Thanks to track and special 
request chits, he was seldom seen on 7-4. Rich 
enjoyed much freedom as a youngster on 
account of his Schwinn and the family Jmpala. 
Rich is fearless behind the wheel of a car. The 
deathrides down Route 2 are history now, but 
not the nightmares. He never lost his senses, 
but once he put on a raging bull impression 
at the Donegal. Second Class year brought the 
raft race and the end of an era of wreckless 
fun. Lauvs managed to escape the EMBC that 
night, as did DKU, but his cohorts got nabbed. 
Caution struck; life slowed to a crawl. Rich was 
volunteered for Plebe Summer Detail. The 
Capt.ain decided it would bring Rich "out of 
his shell. " He spent the summer tied up at the 
Afterdeck in his ski boat. Nevertheless. Lauvs 
found his way back into the common ranks of 
midshipmen. Rich is a strong link in every 
success we have enjoyed. He is ani'ul quiet, but 
he also doesn 't talk any BS. I am sure he will 
find success in the Nuclear Na\y. and moreso 
after. Rich, you're a super friend. God bless

Mark R. Lyons 

Crevecour, Missouri 

Physical Science, Marine Pilot 

Mark's hometown is a small suburb of St. 
Louis (which is about as far from the ocean 
as you can get). He was always set on a 
military career like bis father, a retired Army 
colonel, but wasn't positive of what branch be 
wanted to serve in. He considered following in 
bis father's footsteps by applying to West 
Point, but decided that he would rather fly 
tactical jets. Since no one flies better than the 
Marines. Mark chose to go for the best. 

Mark wanted to be an engineer, but couldn 't 
decide which type. Being sensible, he chose 
General Engineering so he could "work his 
way upward" and change bis major when the 
time came. Well, it didn't (aie long, and he 
moved "up" to Physical Science so he could 
apply himself "more effectively". Mark chose 
the Marine Corps Option Cruise during his 
First Class summer to really find out if the 
Marines were for him. He enjoyed the 
abundance of sunshine in Hawaii and 
discovered that nobody parties better than the 
Marines. From then on, it was Marine Corps 
or bust! 

Mark is the kind of person who loves to pull 
practical jokes. He also threw knives at his 
roommate (which I did not appreciate). He 
was dependable though, and you always knew 
where to find him (in the rack). Mark stands 
for what the Marines are, "Semper Fidelis".

good old Al Cantello. After bis

decided that 


breaking his ankle was more fun. It's not that 
he is clumsy, that's only half of it, he runs 
around in so many circles that neither he nor 
anyone else knows which way he is going. 
When he flies into a room, everyone knows 
instantly who it is by the 3-6dB increase in 
the noise level. The only time that 1 have 
known Cracker to be quiet was following his 
financial loss during the "Striper Bowl." 
Unfortunately he was able to find his wallet 
then, although he has lost it an infinite 
number of times since. He also seems to have 
a problem Hnding the proper facilities as Lt. 
Schlientz found out. Cracker was able to find 
his way to several other fine learning 
institutions on road trips. The only thing be 
forgot for these was the No Doze. After a great 
amount of practice elsewhere, we brought the 
party back to old USNA and Cracker 's 
parents' hotel room at Ho Jo's. Sorry we didn't

Ricardo F. Miranda 

Ricky -rat 

Tacoma, Washington 

Political Science, Surface Line 

Ricky came from Washington hoping to 
make Admiral by 30. Based on the amount of 
sweat on his floor during Plebe year he was 
right on schedule. Most of his time was spent 
on studying and crew practice. Rick was 
always a quiet dependable member of the 
company. He would actively seek out to help 
those in need, whether it be personal 
problems, decisions or homework. 

Rick 's background is rather dubious. He was 
born in the Philippines but claims to be a 
Mexican. His father was a career Air Force 
man. but Rick took to the sea instead of the 
air. He even tried out the Army for one 
semester, but was glad to be back at good, old 
USNA. Rick finally decided that Surface 
Warfare was the way to go and set out to get 
a Spruance. 

Rick's academic interests were primarily 
government and law. and therefore he chose 
political science as his major. His favorite 
college (other than Canoe U.) was Purdue U. 
He spent many a spring break there with his 
fiancee. Cheryl.) Good luck to you in the fleet 
and happy sailing (to both you and Cheryl.)

A native of RockviUe and Kent Island. Mark 
had no problem ("Wipe down Mr. Openshaw") 
adapting to the oppressive heat of plebe 
summer Mark cruised through plebe year 
with the sailing team; whether the coach knew 
be waa on the team, however, is a mystery. The 
sailing buddies, Opey and Duane, took full 
advantage of T-tables and excusals from 
P-rades. formations, and marchovers. Practic- 
ing individually rather than with the team 
they often stopped at the beer ball for a little 
afternoon refreshment Always one to count on 
for a favor, Mark, as a youngster, once drove 
the 2/C out of the yard. Mark joined the 
EMBC early in 2/C year when, after a hard 
day of raft racing and trying to sell beers with 
Brad, be climbed over one too many walls on 
bis way back in and ended up in the Supe's 
backyard. Acedemically. Mark had a knack for 
coming through with the grade when it really 
mattered; whether raising his average a full 
point with finals or beating the Rocket- This 
may be attributed to his sometimes studying 
for finals at the "Vous". Never one to hang 
around on the weekend. Mark organized some 
of the more memorable road trips: Spring 
Break '81 (Nice sunburn), Easter's '82 (Skunk 
beera). and NavyAJVA '83 (My feet are black). 
Mark also hosted the Beach House Bash 
before the Ring Dance. The future holds Mark 
aa a Navy NFO. After November he'll be 
driving "top down" around Penaacola where 
I'm sure he'll have great success. Good luck

Joe came to USNA from rural (Very rural) 
Wheeling, WV with one goal in mind: Marines, 
■loe took Plebe year seriously, as he always 
knew his rates, even when the class had 
carry-on. Joe also selected systems as a major 
that year, not realizing his mistake until 
Youngster year. It was Youngster year when 
Joe kept many others awake for long hours 
while struggling with Bode plots. It was also 
at this time when Joe discovered Recondo. 
Too bad that Frankie, AI. and Paul did the 
same. With their help. Joe could clean his 
uniforms in the shower on a regular basis. 
Second class summer saw Quantico draw Joe 
even closer to the Corps, and second class year 
Recondo finally had some competition: Patty. 
Joe finally kissed a girl and was engaged 
within the year. Joe also spent this time 
contributing to another losing 3rd Batt 
football effort. Leadership found Joe one year 
early, as he was also a 2/C squad leader. 
Following a summer Marine Option Cruise to 
Hawaii, Joe returned as a three striper. A 
company petition tried to keep him off 7-4 for 
the entire year, but unfortunately it failed. 
First class year saw Joe become (he coach who 
led 3rd Batt to a 4-1 football season. Service 
selection finally gave Joe the chance to cut his 
hair again. Joe then began his last major 
hurdle at USNA: learning to drive before 
graduation. The best of luck always to you.

Brian is a product of the fine Naval 
Academy Prep School. His football career was 
short, yet a blessing in disguise. His 
competency and ability to get along well with 
people helped him gain company Commander

faced some sort of tragic event due to his truck 
and the red lights. However, in the end Brian 
beat all the odds and tore T-shirts all the way 
to the top. Good luck Brian, the Marine Corp

Paul A. Povlock 

The Pov 

WiUiamsviJle, New York 

Marine Engineering, Submarines 

Coming from Buffalo, you know Paul 
started off on the wrong foot already. But the 
"Pov" had a talent of overcoming many 
obstacles (Actually, more like stumbling over 
them.) During the first week of plebe summer, 
Paul did only one thing right, and that was 
to arrive on 1-Day on time. You might say he 
made himself well known to the firsties. 

Paul was only looking for three things in life: 
Submarines, plenty of rack time, and a little 
red headed girl. He managed to get all three 
and is still going for more. He never did like 
to let the others get ahead of him, and so 
quickly joined the Car Crash Club. Paul was 
a man who knew his place and stayed there 
(i.e. the rack). 

Many of us are going to miss the "Pov". 
Then again, many of us won 't! The only thing 
we know for sure is that Paul will be among 
his own kind in the fleet. (Bubbleheads). 
Russia, watch out!

Moat colleges treat their freshmen that way. 
He was ao upset his eyebrows used to twitch 
when answering rates. Weigbmg them down 
with a mattress cured thai problem Once 
academic year started. Clay settled down to 
become the stellar midshipman we all know 
and love. He is beyond a doubt the coolest 
geek ever to grace these ballowed balls. For 
a brief time Youngster year Clay thougbt be 
would rather manage hotels than fly jets. 
Some good? words of adxice from hia friends, 
and a new car luckily made him stay. When 
he waan 't studying. Clay found time to pursue 
his two favorite bobbies, beer and women. 
Much experience made him an expert in both. 
"Oh Clay I just love your blond hair. " Yeah 
you just better bope you keep it Bozo! We 
didn't call bim the Golden Boy for nothing. 
Clay was also an excellent all-around athlete. 
After giving baseball a try. he joined the 150 
lb. Football team and starred for two years at 
wide receiver It was a little tough to spot him 
on the field though - all tboee midgets look 
the same. It's been great through this B.S 
together. Ever though you complained I know 
deep down you loved it. Thanks for the

Artie gave up the San Francisco hot tub 
drug culture for a visit to the shores of 
Newport on hia way to USNA. At NAPS be 
learned how to make his bed and lie in it too. 
a skill he practiced quite extensively during 
the next four years; everyone knew where to 
find the Dog during a youngster! After 
breezing through plebe summer (Gee Mr. 
Thorp. I'm a boxer too!) Art made short work 
of plebe year, biding behind bis own brand of 
down-tO'Eartb philosophy which was to 
become knovm as "Dog-iam" because it didn't 
make sense to anyone else. If be wasn 't beating 
up the bags in Halsey during his rare waking 
hours. Art could be found at bis favorite bank 
(Pete's Place) or out at Burger King with bis 
favorite Burger Queen (yeah, we know, Huggy 
Bear!) Second class year brought two new loces 
into Artie's life: his Visa card and his silver 
Vette, the Bullet. When bis Oceanograpby 
studies began to interfere with bia driving 
habits, he switched to a double major; 
"Physical" and "Science", which just made 
him have to work harder to keep from getting 
above a 2.0 (after all. wbat else is a minimum 
for/?) Seriously, though. Temie - you pulled 
through PCR's. situpa. anything with an EE. 
EN or £S in front of it. and a couple of 
summer school sessions with an undying sense 
of humor and a flair that few could match- 
After years of threatening to go Marine Corpa, 
he foUowa bis brother Willie's footsteps into 
the Surface fleet where I know he'll do well 
because underneath that devious smile and 
those "G Q. " clothes lives a heart of gold and 
a damn fine Naval Officer. And, like you 
always say and the Boys in 14 all know. "You 
just can't catch the Dog!"

as his hometown, but you could never tell from 
his accent unless be started his "Bert and I" 
Rubber Boots routine. As a plebe Mike 
literally sailed through just about every 
military evolution while nearly drowning 
academically. Nobody could figure out who be 
paid to take bis SATs. When youngster year 
rolled around he showed up driving a brown 
bomb (not to be confused with bis BMW) with 
Vacstionland plates and a bird stuck in the 
radiator. Many great road trips were planned, 
but it seemed the warwagon spent nearly every 
weekend at Goucber College. Fortunately 
Mike's tenth or eleventh true love, I can't 
remember which, went to Spain during second 
class year which allowed us to expound him 
to the virtues of bachelorhood. Mike showed 
us all that he wasn 't lost by walking five miles

Jim came to USNA from sunny West Palm 
Beach. Florida. To this day he proudly claims 
to be a "Fourth Generation Florida Cracker". 
Jim ahowed true classmate loyalty Plebe Year 
by taking the pressure off everyone else. Jim's 
days in high school band also inspired bim to 
join the Drum & Bugle Corps. Jim was proud 
of his Southern origin, but be learned the hard 
way tha t not all upperclass shared his 
enthusiasm. He tried bumper stickers and 
flags, but they all came down Youngster year 
Jim continued as a member of the D&B until 
the Air Force competition. He then led the 
mass exodus of corps members in search of a 
QPR. Second class year Jim found that there 
was more to life than Aerospace Engineering, 
ao he joined the Judo Club. Jim's separated 
shoulder, pulled muscles, and bruises attest to 
bis aweaome talent in this sport. First class 
year Jim found a more productive way to 
spend his time: Afternoon workouts with 
coach Lenz. In addition. Jim could finally 
hang the flags and bumper stickers stored 
since Plebe year Jim also proved to be a fine 
correspondent first class year, writing at least 
four letters for each one received. Further- 
more, he distinguished himself by providing 
numerous no interest loans to needy class-

Jim headed toward his longtime goal: The 
Navy astronaut program. The best of luck 
always to you, Jim, and keep aiming high.

Chattanooga, Tennessee 

Management, Navy Air 

This good old boy came busting into 
Annapolis on 1-Day and hasn't slowed down 
one bit since he got here. Plebe year went by 
pretty smooth down the SHAFT until Stsce 
decided he couldn't live without that country 
music and got caught with bis radio. Then 
came that annual "Spring Fever" of his and 
he made the mistake of doing a little partying 
out in town after taps one night. That was a 
heckuva Commissioning Week . . . Youngster 
year looked like a time to just sit back and 
stay out of everyone's way. Unfortunately we 
got in the way of a certain SEAL officer one 
night and Stace ended up paying for it for 2 
years. He also liked to have a good time at 
the Army-Navy game, occasionally going a 
little overboard (Mr. Morlock still doesn't like 
vou for that'.!) To say that this guy loved to 
workout would be an understatement. He had 
a permanent spot in the weightroom and when 
he wasn 't there he could be found under the 
desk doing situps or against the wall doing 
pushups There is no doubt that he could be 
very happy if the only things he had were a 
weightbench, a blender, and an unlimited 
supply of milk and granola cereal. Stace was 
also very dedicated when it came to academics 
but he firmly believed in getting his sleep, 
another area in which be excelled. 

Stace didn't get his pilot billet because of 
bis eyes but P-cola is getting a winner in this

him the best of luck. V'ouVe been a super

I first saw Steve on 1-Day 1980. He was 
dressed in an OP tee shirt, faded jeans and 
sandals. I remember wondering when the 
Academy had begun giving twelve year old 
hippies age waivers. Looking at bis long, 
blonde hair, I thought maybe he was an ROTC 
Midshipman who had taken a wrong turn. 

After a short but fierce struggle resulting in 
a haircut and change into a uniform for Steve. 
I was amazed to find that he was two years 
older than I was. I didn't worry about it for 
long because the ghost, being a sailor, 
disappeared for the rest of the year, except for 
a run in with the Company Sub-Commander 
before Army where neither could remember 
the others name or even if they were in the 
same company. 

Since Plebe year, Steve has reappeared and 
tried to instill in me his love for sailing, 
sportscars, loud stereos and Florida. I in turn 
have tried to cure him of his chronic anorexia 
with much less success. 

Grounded by a childhood bout with asthma, 
he's now land-locked in the Supply Corps and 
loving it I just look forward to the next time 
we get together in our twin X 1/9's and go 
cruising under the Florida sun.

A displaced Chicagoan. ol'Cyco Bob quickly 
adapted to life in the Navy. It can never be 
said that he was one to settle for second best. 
From his '83 charcoal grey RX- 7 to his success 
as a Chem major to bis ultimate destiny of 
becoming a nuke power trained officer, Bob 
faired well in academics, athletics, ECAa, and 
general USNA support. As Ring Dance 
business manager, he oversaw some many 
thousands of his classmates' dollars without so 
much as pilfering a cent - thank heavens for 
the financial officer, hub? Recruiting for 
USNA was another of our boy's priorities. In 
fact. Bob took part in the Academy's academic 
recruiting program ■ for three straight years. 
He led this dubious intentioned group in his 
final summer. Seriously though. Bob will be 
remembered as the epitome of the notion of 
integrity. Both his sponsors, the Wescoes, and 
all his good friends will always remember Bob 
for his honesty, generosity, and fort brightness. 
And now, this Midwest city boy has Orlando 
on his mind. He leaves behind a legacy of 
romances spanning the continental United 
States, the Cyco Bob and Sean show oa 
WRNV, and an unquenchable pursuit of 
excellence. Success must certainly be in the 
cards for Rich Central's finest graduate.

This man should have been a rock star. Bob 
came to Annapolis off bis North American 
tour, with a special appearance at NAPS, and 
be hasn't stopped rockin' since. He did 
manage to put together a couple of groups 
while he was here (Burnt Angel and Xea). but 
soon realized bis future in music was limited. 
After coming to this conclusion he set his 
sights on Nuclear Power (what else?!"^). The 
REALM then became a place for long hours 
of studying and other strange rituals. Bob also 
worked very bard on keeping bis record intact 
of never taking a P.E. test on time. He had 
so many "sudden" injuries that medical 
stopped asking questions and just signed his 
chits. Bob met the love of his life early so he 
became pretty tied up on weekends. Second 
class year was full of trauma as Clarky had 
to battle both Rocket Read and his fear of the 
tower jump. Tower jump EI helped but no 
amount of EI could save him from the Rocket. 
He also built an infamous reputation with the 
plebes and lived in fear at a pep rally or any 
time a rumble broke out. The Nuke interviews 
finally came and a suicide was prevented when 
Bob found out he had been selected. 

You've been a great friend Clarky and your 
sense of humor will be missed by us all I still

you. Best of luck to you and Susan and keep

Richard B. Czechowski 


Pensacola, Florida 

Political Science, Marine Corps 

Czech came to USNA from Pensacola. the 
son of a Marine and heir to a fine southern 
tradition, of sorts. There was some dispute as 
to whether Florida counted as part of the 
South or if Pennsylvania-born parents count 
as a southern heritage, but Czech had his little 
of confederate flag to prove it, so we let it 

Czech's two great loves in life are the Marine 
Corps and country music. You could always 
bear some good country music coming from his 
room, punctuated by an occasional "AAVUR- 
RAUGH"; plebe year, it was provided by bis 
fine guitar playing, afterwards, it was 
supplemented by his stereo at full volume. 

Czech had little use for courses such as 
Navigation, but judging by the wrong turn he 
took looking for the bead after the dining-in 
plebe year, he needed all the help he could get. 
(Hey Wise-guy. bow's your briefcase doing 
these days?) 

Czech also had difficulty with technical 
endeavors such as rigging a apiffy or a drill 
belt as a plebe. so when it came time to chose 
majors, it was Poly Sci for our gyrene. He was 
perfect for this field as evidenced by his 
remarkable memory, especially of all our 
academy experiences, every single one! He 
look forward to seeing him at future reunions 
BO we can hear the instant replay. 

On graduation day. Czech trades in his Na\y 
blue for the forest green of the Marine Corps. 
We wish him the best of luck. Semper Fi.

Larry could have been classified as any one 
of the following: Sanford's Ambassador to

interpreter; Q-ball proteg^; professional 
restrictee; van customizer; co-founder of

all, a true friend who has always retained his 
zest for life and bis ability to instill this 
quality in others.

Aside from his musical talents, Phil proved 
himself on the grid-iron as well by playing

And who could ever forget his many exploits

' Mando was anything but good humored to

bis ability to outsleep even youngsters (From 
months of hibernating back m the Great 
White North) He further inspired everyone 
with his "Beer-Hunter" method of studying 
for finals 

During his 4 years, developed further and 
exchanged hibernation for late night dates 
with the computer in seeking to become the 
World's foremost bit-brain Later, intensive 
bramwaahing and alcohol enabled him to 
endure vacationing in Florida, where Sean 
found a new purpose in life: Dating more girls 
all at once then he could count, without using 
FORTRAN This "neat guy" took {perhaps 
very distant) control of WRNV and its huge 
budget great staff meetings in Florida' 

The submarine force baa seen the incredible 
potential in Sean, and. if they can overcome 
the hibernation tendencies, be will contribute 
the relaxed leadership that Nuclear Power has 
traditionally lacked Good luck & AMF!

Nathan came to USNA. a alow talking, Bible 
toting boy from Atlanta who you wouJdn't 
expect to say "Boo!" However, once he learned 
to speak English (vice Southern) We found out 
he was a little insane. His love of recon raids 
and boxing didn't seem to fit his quiet 

After Plebe year, we found out what else 
Nathan loved - Women. I believe be stiii holds 
some sort of record for number of phone 
numbers added to a little black book in one 
weekend. Unfortunately, during second class 
year. Nathan found out that bis hobby and 
Electrical Engineering were not very compat- 
able, and with some very experienced advice, 
Nathan re-examined his priorities switched to 
General Engineering, and bought a BMW so 
that he would have the time and mobility to 
pursue his primary interest. Alt that remained 
was to learn how to drive. 

Nathan leaves USNA for Pensacola via

New London, Ohio 

Management, Marine Corps 

Glenn "call me Rocko" Murray was New 
London Ohio's gift to USNA, a true Marine 
in every sense of the word- His short lived 
boxing career during plebe year earned him his 
title "Rocko" which be was affectionately 
called throughout his stay here. Rocko was 
also famous for his feared "Coco Crush" both 
on and off the athletic field. Rock acquired his 
gold jump wings second class year like all good 
marines. While here, he majored in Hotel- 
Motel Management and in the future be plans 
to get his MBA and mange us all. Rocko had 
this natural tendency to pull out all the stops 
on the weekends, drinking himself in to 
oblivion and getting himself into some 
harrowing experiences of which he always 
managed to escape unscathed. He put it all 
together first class year as our company 
commander. He was friends with all, especially 
beer, women, Ohio, and most of all, VISA! We 
had a great seven semesters rooming together 
and Glenn Deet and I will always have fond 
memories of our time together at this here 
boat school. 

See ya round Rock,

Douglas B. Nedry 


Camarillo, California 

Applied Science, Navy Air 

Doug entered the Naval Academy in true 
fashion — with a California tan and the 
attitude of a laid back civilian. The only 
problem though was that he was now in 
Annapolis, Md. and in the Navy. Yet, through 
extra curricula activities (le. weights, radios, 
and extended liberties) be somehow managed 
to survive plebe year. 

With the tone set for his entire stay at 
USNA, Moogie (from a Cbeech and Cbong 
excerpt) changed only two things. He got 
serious about women and academics (in that 
order). One could never be sure of which one 
was rising faster — his list of girls or his grade 
point average. However, one thing is for sure 
though. Doug received more "outside" mail 
than any one else. So, you be the judge. 

While it is true that Doug had his fair share 
of good times, he had them in the midst of 
friends. No one could ever challenge Doug's 
friendship for he was a friend and always will 
be in the true sense of the word. I, and the 
rest, will miss Doug, but at the same time, will 
be able to look overhead and think of that 
streaking Navy pilot.

Aerospace Engineering, Navy Air 

Dual member of the realm and master of the 
rack were but just two of Wic's many positiona 
at the Academy. Wic was a napater and a lot 
of people expected a great deal out of "slim". 
During plebe summer he was put in charge of 
a bus operation (it was a slippery situation but 
Wic managed to straighten it out). During 
plebe year, Wic kept busy by thinking of ways 
to eat crackers and read papers yet convey to 
others that be was sound asleep . . . sort of. 
Youngster year brought freedom ... a freedom 
Wic obtained a year earlier according to many 
in the Class of '82. Wic excelled in sports and 
academics. Wic played ISO's and baseball until 
bis shoulder destined him to company sports. 
Sports for Wic. as for the rest of the realm, 
was a challenge — not to see how well you did 
but to see how many I's could be accumulated. 
With second class year came the commitment, 
ring, and car. Along with the material aspects 
of 2nd class year the mental aspects were 
numerous as well. It was hard for Wic to keep 
track of his women and visa bills — a problem 
he still has today. Wic was a real heartbreaker. 
Though he had many be never found one to 
marry . . . sort of Wic loved all sorts of women: 
college girls, girls who worked in bathrooms, 
and plain old girls. Many girls stemmed from 
Army weekend experiences . . . and many 
experiences stemmed from Army. May the 
realm always rule. Navy Air is getting a great 
guy. Good luck buddy, you are the greatest 
and I wish you all the beat in the fleet and 
the future.

This young Hercules came to us four years 
ago from the cultural and economic center of 
the neatern world. Canton. Ohio- During Plebe 
summer Ted established himself as the top 
performer in the company and was chosen as 
fourth class company commander. This was 
not enough, however, for Ted nith his 90 
pound frame of twisted steel and sex appeal 
spent his plebe year as a member of the crew 
team Weren't we all shocked when third class 
vear came, and this pillar of professionalism 
ut to be a closet youngster. In 
to the change in his professional 
nother change had taken place, and 
I that Ted had now found "the secret" 
to academics, and has been a "4.0" student 
ever since. Many were the nights when one 
could find Ted and bis proteges dehing into 
academic endeavors in the company office- 
Tbey disguised their geek -like habits by rarely 
having their books open, making an inordinate 
amount of noise, and taking many backgam- 
mon breaks. Second class year. Ted's 
profeaaionalism took a firm swing upward; in 
fact, it was so firm and so far upward that 
during plebe detail, the Class of 1987 was 
asying that their beloved sub commander, 
Teddy, was about the firmest and hardest guy 
around. Whenever Ted's friends watch a 007 
mone with him. Ted's favorite genre of film, 
he brings to their attention the fact that 
Bond's suavity with the ladies reminds him of 
himself. As evidence to this fact, he gathered 
a small group of young women, from Bancroft, 
which bis friends fondly refer to as Teddy's 
Angels. In all seriousness Ted. it has been our 
pleasure. You've taught us to laugh when we 
felt like crying and to smile when all we had 
was a frown. Thanks. God bless, and good

John came to USNA by way of prep school 
in Minnesota. Realizing that plebe year was 
a far cry from what be was used to ( Van Halen 
and his girlfriend back home), John got 
involved m other things (ie. room to room food 
fights and WRNV radio). By years end, John 
had made a drastic change. 

Now being a shaft dweller. John was right 
where he wanted to be — Coolsville. With the 
volume half-way up and the lights turned out, 
it was not unusu&l to find Pro involved in the 
Friday night concert hour. Yet, this would 
only last until Johnny Carson came on For 
at this time the newing apparatus (t.v.l went 
on. It is not hard to see why Pro and hia 
academics spoke a different language. 

As time went by. John diversified. He saw 
different girls (Oneota and Capt.'s Row) and 
got the car of his dreams iZ-28). He even 
managed to throw in a semester of academics. 
However. through all of this. John maintained 
his friendships. Good luck Pro m wherever the

Nat came to the Academy from Bayahore. 
uncertain as to what the future might bring 
but certain that she would make it. .After 
getting cut from the Volleyball team plebe 
year, she worked until getting elected Captain 
in her first class year. Nat is the type of person 
that could give you looks that could be easily 
misinterpreted (no - not the bad amell on a 
bus trip look). What might appear to be 
non-caring, snobbish, and itchy, are looks 
known by those who know her well as caring, 
sensitive (hah!) and sometimes half awake. I 
have not known a time when Nat did not stop 
to lend a listening ear whenever her friends 
needed it. We laughed, cried, bitched, 
criticized, lost games and boyfriends together 
but most of all we have always been best 
friends, since we are the only ones who will 
put up with each other But. now our lives are 
following two different paths with many miles 
to go and many promises to keep both to 
ourselves and to others. However. I am certain 
that our paths will always find a connecting 
point. Remember Nat. bold fast to your 
dreams, for a woman without a dream is like 
a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Good 
luck in D.C. and best of luck to both you and

with worldly advice. Friends till we die, I 
promise . . . Mac Nyce. 

Four years was a long time, but good friends 
made it worth it. Joey and Laur made 
everyday just a little bit strange. Mac Nyce 
always made me smile. Mug and Vick who are 
just plain strange! And. of course, John, who 
ia always there when I need him. Goodbye,

If any Naval Academy graduate has the 
right to claim that he bad a reaJ plebe year 
it is Johnson So. After a relaxing plebe 
summer at the Philippine Military Academy, 
Johnson got to start the fun all over again at 
the U.S.N.A. When asked to compare the two 
academies, Johnson says, "compared to the 
P.M. A., the Naval Academy is teets," 
Fortunately for Johnson, his plebe summer 
squad leader at the Naval Academy, Kevin 
Schaaf was a kind, compassionate man who 
understood how difficult it must be for a 
foreign national. When asked about Schaaf, 
Johnson replied, "A great guy. I would never 
want to keel him. " Johnson is a very inventive 
and resourceful person whose motto is, "The 
stock products are good, but a So modification 
is better. " J. P. is reported to be quite a ladies 
man, but when asked about reports that he 
was seeing a mysterious Madame Diaz and 
several other women, his reply was, "You have 
no need to know. I can neither confirm nor 
deny. " J. P. has been an outstanding leader 
in the company and has set an excellent 
example for his companymates. He will be a 
great asset to the Philippine Navy and a great 
loaa to the U.S. Navy. When J. P. goes home, 
he will be dearly missed by all his friends here

Joanne-Joanne!! Only 13 days left until the 
mile. Run away Run away!! I really don 't know 
bow to sum up our relationship since it never 
has been too rational. First of all. how stable 
can a friendship be when it comes about from 
being members of the same team, and the 
fencing team at that. What an exhilarating 
sport and what about those male fencers on 
the other team - what men! I guess we all know 
where the term the gay blade comes from. 
Remember the Major and those one minute 
ice showers, admonishments in the Brigade 
Bulletin, and no jeans. We sure showed her 
didn 't we, you in your red mini skirt and me 
in black leather. Looking back I realize how 
lucky you were to have me as a friend, that 
snowball would never have killed her anyway. 
Remember the wild Key West trip? How 
exotic that week was with the shark, jellyfish 
attack, Ned and Gary and let's not forget the 
killer conch train. Remember that if every- 
thing else fails, Jo. you have a promising career 
in dog racing; betting not running. Go Rathole! 

Remember fencing with Benito Mussolini 
and Bette Davis in the same day. Remember 
also never to play catch by yourself with a 
horseshoe on a string. What I'll remember is 
a terrific friendship that has nothing but ups 
and too many laughs to ever set down. I wish 
you luck and happiness. You've been a great 
friend. Love in Krishna.

in a low voice say, "East". After a few years 
as an enlisted man. a year at NAPS, and four

unselfishness on and off the court and field.

invaluable to him as the company drill officer

Him and He will make your paths straight. "

Phillip W. Springer 


Deer Park, Texas 

Mechanical Engineering, Civilian 

We always thought Texans were a stubborn 
bunch and this fair haired poet from Deer 
Park, Texas confirmed our suspicions — be 
accomplished things that people told him just 
could not be done. After a rocky academic 
plebe year, our greatly respected and eloqueDt 
company officer, the Boober. told him, "Ah, 
ah. Mr. Springer, ah. you better choose 
another major; you'll never metke it as a, ah, 
Mecb. E." Easy going Phil never let much 
bother him. especially plebe year in deeding 
with his upperclass buddy, Bennion Joe. Ever 
since youngster year and stereos, you couldn't 
fmd Phil without his country music. Four 
years later our big grinned buddy from the 
Lone Star state is the Academy's most (only) 
marketable engineer. Springer's academic 
success was a feat; but who would have 
believed that anyone could excel for four years 
in this program, be perfectly healthy, and be 
graduated as an engineer in civland! Dedbur- 
nit, just as Phil was fixin ' to get hisself a slot 
in CEC. the doggone waiver didn't come 
through. Phil was upset for awhile: but then 
he thought to himself, "Shoot fire! I done sleep 
walked myself into the most sought after billet 
from the Academy. " The Lord must be smiling 
upon Phil, and although we're envious, we 
must admit that Phil deserves it. He has been 
a diligent disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, 
and although the fleet will never have the good 
fortune of Phil being one of its leaders, 
indirectly it will receive the benefits of his 
caring leadership through the positive in- 
fluence he has been on all the future officers 
whose Uvea he has touched. We'll miss you 
bud; you're the last of the great lax heroes.

with Bob's help this year. I think we fooled

still liked the room too hot; I hope he s happy

Chris Collins, Mr. Sun extraordinaire, had 
arrived Hailing from the sligh tly Indus - 
trialized stMe of West Virginia, Chris is the 
man of the eternal smile His good nature and 
caaualnesB have carried him through the ups

was a cinch ■ for a while. It is debatable 
whether or not Chris' amazing hair style had 
anything to do with his becoming a fecal 
magnet. Not one to let things bother him. 
Chris began a new and adventurous life 
youngster year. He participated m normal 
activities such as the Arwy-Navy inebriation 
contest (Kangaroo ugly is an understa- 
tement!), and tension relieving Hoodtramids 
(Pam sure was great therapy, eh Chris'*). Chris 
passed through a slight manliness crisis (let's 
be friends and develop a meaningful relation- 
ship) with flying colors, proving that in 
actuality his mmd did not lack a Clint 
Eastwood-like thought process of a true 
fighter Speaking of fighters. Chris was a 
sporadic member of the Military Studies 
Association, amd more than one night saw him 
hulking over a game of "Squad Leader" or 
"Third Reich". At one time he could, with 
little difficulty, recite the serial numbers of all

studying, however, and bis long hours staling 
over EE have paid off; Chris will graduate with

Almost everyone had witnessed him "laid

This style of learning, however profound, 
earned Ned a respectable QPA and a spot in

Ned's friends will always remember him for

Youngster year Joe met the Deputy Dant and 
accidently decorated his shoes with old beans. 
Some of hi a dates weren't too lively, but that 
didn't bother Joe. While on Protramid, as a 
member of the party animals (3-c). he met 
Scarface over a year before the moiie was 
made That same summer Joe tried to enter 
the Demolition Derby Circuit, but didn't have 
much luck. He was one of the first to get a 
car, but the last to drive one iFix It Again 
Tony). Besides pinochle and hearts, another 
hobby of his is being a human bunsen burner. 
Junior year he found a home as a member of 
the illustrious penthouse, where contrary to 
the wishes of Rey, he had to feed the birds. 
DING' That same year he got indoctrinated 
into the "DEAD" way of life, which took him 
from California to Connecticut to Norfolk, to

It took a while for Mike 's soft-spoken 
Southern personality to get a strong foothold 
on Academy life. A bit shell-shocked from the 
hectic pace of plebe year, due mostly from the 
constant harassment of a paranoid- 
schizophrenic tlrstie, Mike lost over thirty 
pounds from his 1-Day frame. One big notch 
up the ladder, youngster year brought an 
unexpected change in both his roommates and 
bis intended major. Appointed chief taster in 
the gourmet dining club of room 7127. he 
contributed notably in the concocting of a 
choice "Chablis de Chesapeake." Mike was 
also an active member of the "Dark Ages in 
Dahlgren" ECA — paying his weekly five 
dollar dues. 

Spring of youngster year, an unexpected 
angel dropped in on his life at a Notre Dame 
Mixer. All of a sudden, weekends took on a 
new light: P E. tests lingering over from plebe 
year were polished off promptly. Mike 
attacked his last two years at the Academy 
with renewed determination. 

He absorbed the shock of plebe year, 
endured the introduction of country-western 
music to his life youngster year, and survived 
the rough roads up to Baltimore for two more 
years. Not to mention, he still has that 
"unexpected angel" by his side. Continued 
success in Navy Air is guaranteed for Mike, 
a special friend to all who know him.

James Thomas Foster (Jim) left the Sandy 
soils of Alvin Texas for the sidelines of 
Annapolis. Jim holds the record for missing 
the most classes. After plehe pep. Jim would 
beach himself. Jim has lived by the motto 
"Don't let going to school interfere with your 
education " and he hasn 't. Jim s first Army trip 
included dancing with a lamp and "bring me 
a trash can". Jim made friends quickly at our 
pie be dining-in by saying "bring it on 
". Jim had no problem in getting 
roommates youngster year, they were picked 
for him. Youngster year included his first 
Vous-trip. Me now rents an apartment above 
it to cut travel costs. 2nd class year was his 
indoctrination to the penthouse (R.I. P.) Jim 
has slept in various places, the wrong frat 
house (UVA), janitor's closet (Mary Wash.), 
lobby (G-Town). Remember, "rise and shine 
corpus. " 2nd class year saw Jim's tweety legs 
get playing time "pile jumping" to get his 
name on the radio. Later he got a sweater to 
keep warm. He learned how to use the back 
door at the Vous, the sink in the attic, and 
how to spot landmarks (the Tuhorg Factory). 
Jim didn't want NorefUl for his hangover but 
he did want 3 stripes. The Lt. wanted to 
inspect Jim's coffin but be was undressed, 
reading the paper in bed, no stripes. Jim s Ft. 
Lauderdale trip was a "hea\y" memory from 
Teddy 's party, remem ber amazon woman, 
whiskey wisher? Jim's bed saw an occasional 
visitor. Jim does deserve credit but bow about 
the following: the nurse, Shelby, Cathy (Mary 
Wash), Susan in the Rambler, the gymnast, 
Robin Hood, Lisa-Goucher. KeUey -snaked-

Across the table, he stood at rigid attention, 
eyes burning with fire. This was my first look 
at John Hartman, alias Capt. Intensity. I 
realized right then he would be a hard man 
to keep up with. I didn't even have the 
strength to mat^h his facial expressions. From 
that day on Hartski attacked every aspect of 
Navy with limitless energy. A natural athlete, 
with a love of pain, John breezed through P.E. 
and terrorized tb e Ugh t weigh t field. 
Academics couldn't stop him either, even the 
dreaded aero major. Late nights at the 
computer, rereading physics and thermo books 
again and again were all in a day's work for 
Hartski. All his hard work led to a Co. 
Commander position and induction into 
Gamma-Sigma-Sigma. Partying was also a 
pastime of Johnny's, and he didn 't take it easy 
here either. Late night dancing, air guitar, 
Rutgers trips and the deadly sambuca proved 

After flirting with the Marines for three 
years John went with Navy Air in hot pursuit 
of the stick of an F/A-l's. JB will make a 
superb pilot, especially since he won't have to 
worry about his keys or cassettes. Johnny will 
bit the fleet with a running start, like be often 
did our doors. So heads up P-cola. don 't stand 
in the way. As spokesman for the Intensity 
Squad I wish the best of luck to a great friend.

heights and greater goals. Those of us below

A long time ago, in a galaxy far. far away. 
Bill Heys set out on the first interstellar 
expeditionary mission to the planet earth. 
Arriving in Annapolis on the 8th of July, 1980, 
Bill immediately put his superior intelligence 
to work in improving the technologically 
inferior human society. In adapting to the 
American way of life. Heyser has added a 
colorful perspective to the U.S. Naval 
Academy. He cruised through plebe i 
camp and plebe year with only m 
to his superstructure, and still managed to get 
in a few yoga sessions. Bill has had a slight 
problem in being the only astronaut in our 
class: his shuttle tickets home to the Crab 
Nebula for leave periods have cost him a 
considerable sum of money. I guess the Nuke 
bonus is good for something! youngster year 
Bill found his karma in the systems 
engineering department, and he immediately 
assumed the leadership position of 
Commander-in-Chief, Systems Gouge Trio. 
Bill proved that he could do the work of three 
men. Needless to say. Hank and Captain 
Midnight owe you a few beers, Bill! Second 
class year saw Heyser opening new doors, 
delving into the human pleasures of wine and 
women. However, we're still waiting for his 
voice to lower a few octaves. Bill has another 
claim to uniqueness: be is one of the only avid 
s upporters of the Seattle Seahawks and 
Mariners. Have they gone pro yet, Bill? No 
other person has made such a positive mark 
in 16th Company's history, and Bill's 
invigorating presence will be missed by us all. 
Nuke power could not receive a more capable 
mariner, and there is no doubt that we'll be 
hearing good things about this man in the 
future. Fair winds and following seas, Bill!

getting a haircut. Hobbling around on 4 legs 
instead of 2, Brent decided to try stunt driving

by the snake and saw "one of the ten ugliest 
girls in the world. " He then became the proud 
owner of one of the infamous "wheels. " Tough 
finding a space huh Jenks? Got the McKown 
spot, Fraay! He made many road trips during 
his stay including a high speed return from 
Bait, tours of the city, and the search for . . . 
bird or ripple? Almost a track star. Jenks was 
the only mid to outrun his pants after a rough 
workout. His other athletic skills include 
slashmg, darts (nice dartboard), and the great 
outdoor cathedral downstairs race. Outstand- 
ing academics led Jenks to an early parole at 
Georgetown grad school. A poly sci major who 
also had interests in zoology (Panda Bears)

Out from the jungles of New Jersey came 
Mike, and we could almost swear he was 
wearing cammies that hot day in July of 1980. 
As the days got hotter, so did the firsties and 
Mike was always quick to respond with a yes. 
sir. no. sir. or was that just a rasp"^ The bets 
came early on among us on whether or not 
Mike would be the first to commit himself to 
a lifetime of grunting, short haircuts, and 
loving women. The hints came in early as Mike 
hooked up for some pre-Quantico training 
nitbin the yard in the form of a shell and to 
the command of "stroke." With the climbing 
of Herndon, Mike now bad a chance to test 
his tactic^ skills against the women of the 
world- But that was too easy for Mike, so he 
decided to shave bis head that first summer 
in order to make it more a challenge That 
summer we found out Eddie, oh. I mean Mike, 
was just not suited for Na\y Air as everytime 
they put him in a plane, he would bead 
straight for the side door and the quicker route 
down. Just couidn 't keep the girls waiting- 
Jumping out of a perfectly good plane. Mike, 
yo u passed our psych ological tes ting for 
entrance into the Corps. With the next sport 
season Mike decided to chill out as he bit the 
ice for Na\y- Just scoring a goal was not tough 
enough for this crew veteran, he wanted to be 
on the receiving end of an 100 mile an hour 
puck. Finished with target practice. Mike only 
had one essential skill left to refme before 
service selection, a command voice. Opportun- 
ity knocked with the plebes of '87. and Mike 
taught the much needed skill of Up-reading to 
his squad- Well. Mike, now I must get going 
m order to get in line to cash in on my bet; 
good luck and go easy on the Corps.

the Frieda bunt in Dahlgren. Steve also 
founded the Steve Lanier School of Tact to 
teach us the finer points of etiquette. His 
motto was "If I don't get none, neither do 
you. " Phone calls at all hours of the morning 
were a Lanier trademark that always started 
out "Guess What?" Steve was the biggest 
Dawgs fan in the Brigade, following them to 
two Sugar Bowls, which be can't remember 
On youngster cruise. Steve proved m France 
that you don't have to know the language to 
be tactless and went skinny -dii^ping on the 
Riviera. Youngster year in Boston. Steve got 
off the bus and said "Look at all the damn 
Yankees!" On the way to Army that year. 
Steve got people to open their windows, even 
though they were in North Jersey. 2/c summer, 
Steve was one of the 3C animals and he found 
the bat which from then on he always wore, 
even to the Ring Dance. His favorite place to 
be was m a Jacuzzi with a honey and a case 
of Black Label at a Marriott- First class year. 
Steve rediscovered his childhood hero. Dusty 
Rhodes, much to our chagrin. After Rooster

Political Science, Surface Line 

"They said he would come; from the North, 
a man of great strength!" Kent did indeed 
arrive on day 1 of July. 1980. fulfilling the 
age-old prophecy- Due to his gargantuan 
stature and his possession of a Hyborian- 
forged broadsword. Kent was not long in 
acquiring the nickname of "Conan". Kent's 
North was not Cimmeria. but Bremerton. 
Washington. Bremerton 'a weather has left him 
undaunted (it's a nice home; for a duck'), and 
I'm still Mickiefied about the reasons behind 
his pilgrimages back to "God's country". Kent 
came to USNA because he knew "what's best 
in life". Aak the '87 plebes of Foxtrot 
Company. From I-day Kent has made an 
enormous contribution to 16th Company. 
During plebe summer he was very rodent 
"Mr. Jagietlo! What's wrong with 
ate Mr. Mann! He ees sleepeeng 
on dee floor - stupeed! Mices and theengs 
gonna crawl all over hees body!" (Max 
BlandonI During youngster year Kent tried a 
variety of majors. He finally settled on the SE 
major — Study Evasion. How about those 
Poly Sci majors! Of course, those weekends 
with Lynn were very time consuming. Kent 
also joined the Men 's Power Volleyball team 
that year. He did very well considering bis 
tendency towards hypochondria. First class 
year (second class year was a study in 
vegetation) he became an avid reader; maybe 
be will actually read a textbook before 
graduation. Most of the year Kent was on The 
Far Side. "Say! What's a mountain goat doing 
way up here in a cloudbank!" He also became 
very dress conscientious (since Mrs. Mann, bis 
mother, became a color consultant, Kent ha.^ 
gone wild). Don't tell bim that Phil Donahue 
wears Camel's hair blazers too! As Kent is 
destined to excel in the Black shoe Navy, we 
wish him the best of luck. He 's been a very 
good friend. Fll get the lights.

complete with black glasses and eyestrap. The 
only noteworthy event of plebe year was his 
first escape to Georgetown which left him fiith 
a flat tire and an extensive road tour of DC. 
Hank slipped comfortably into the youngster

soon inheriting Foster to make life interesting. 
With R Gorman as ICOR be moved up to the

Henry kept busy with his Far East Studies 
at the library, child care, and penthouse

His constant quest for California was finally 
attained after leaving us in stitches after

Florida sunshine for chow calls and geek- 
glaaaea. Never the showboat. Drew succeeded 
in being the unknown mid for most of plebe 
year. Plebe Year also brought brief wealth in 
the form of a gorgeous but hidden stereo. 
Youngster Year and a certain tailgater 
changed everything though, and from then on. 
when be could be found, be was usually 
working out or selling stereo components for 
weekend funds. Second class year brought a 
diamond ring and chapel date into our 
financial wizard's life, as well as a Mustang 
which he was constantly repairing when he 
was not playing Company Social Rep at Notre 

Once feared to be a narcoleptic, physical 
fitness was now a big part of Drew's life, with 
six hour jogging trips into town, bike rides to 
Baltimore, and superman imitations down

After serving his country bravely in Beirut, 
our highly decorated hero returned with the

it in on the inevitable family wagon halfway

He was blessed with a typical Ail-American

with a father who was a child psychologist. 
The former Eagle Scout made such an 
impression on hia first squad Idr. that she 
called him "noticeably unnoticeable". What 
bis background did for him was to give him 
the ability to room with anyone. He was the 
referee for two years of Frankenstein vs. the 
Testtube Baby and spent two years keeping 
Sharpy from getting a Section 8. When it was 
time to pick majors, Dave gave up Crew for 
Systems with this decision began the greatest

Bos'n Osen. the Rabbit, Ra. power Boater. 
After 4/c year. Dave was picked by Uncle A

he left the maternity ward of Anne Arundel 
General 22 years ago. A token NAPS graduate, 
he eventually made his way back to Annapolis. 
As a plebe year walk-on. he ran his way to 
prominence by becoming captain of Navy's 
Cross Country team and a multiple letterman 
in both indoor and outdoor track. While hia 
dedication won him the respect of coaches and 
teammates alike, it also won him an invitation 
to his OB7I girlfriend's wedding. When be 
wasn't running. Mark traveled to keep going. 
At times he seemed convinced his Honda was 
a Ferrari, laying a nine mile skid in a ten mile 
ride. Seeking to expand horizons, he traveled 
to Europe, where he acquired a taste for 
certain Swiss sweets. Hia other voyages 
included Spain (meals of tequila and bread), 
New Orleans, and who could forget Pasadena, 
with its starry nights and Christie clear 
mornings. Never an overly excited or terribly 
exuberent person, many were surprised when 
Mark chose Special Warfare for his service 
selection — you know better but I know him. 
Best of luck with the Seals. Summer, and 
remember: the wheel is turning and it can't 
slow down . . .

In from the slopes of the Rockies of 
Colorado skied Jon that beginning July day of 
1980. Ever since then. Jon has looked for the 
easy way through; in fact. G has become 
aynoDomous with him ■— ask me. Seriously, he 
does work hard at some things. Last year he 
was once involved with horizontal stress 
analysis for over 22 hours, a definite record 
What else are those mid-semester, unofficial 
vacations for anyway. I think he needs a new 
alarm clock; one he won't sleep through. 

During bis spare time, Jon 's been preparing 
himself for the day he gets to sing the National 
Anthem in the Superbowl. He'll get Paige 'd on 
that occasion. Actually Jon had quite a good 
time as a member of the Glee Club. He kept 
a record of all the trips he took in his Black 
Book. The trips are almost over now. but he's 
still having a won-Dee-fuliy good time. Too 
bad Sue. Sue and Pen. I wonder if Jon decided 
on his singing adventures that September 
night out at Middleton's Tavern or the night 
of the 1980 Company Dinmg-in. On second 
thought, not on those nights. 

Jon is all set for Navy Air; waiting until the 
last night before deciding whether to don the 
Blue or the Green. I sure hope Dee and the 
Misfit don't mind P-cola. By the way. I 
wonder if they have big oak trees in Florida?

Boston became a weekday only resident of 
Annapolis -— preferring 34th St to 7-2. The 
only thing that kept him in Annapolis on 
weekends was his dedication to the NA VT 
distance corps. One of the pillars of the team 
(what with 6 letters and 2 seasons left), he 
took some flak for not heading out after-hours 
with Newms. Poodle, and Scummer but after 
the gun sounded he was right where he was 
needed. Four years of college (or attending 
USNA) are enough for anyone; and the 5 yr. 
plan was too much for the CSBs as computers 
fell victim to outside interests. 

Time travels when you go from one fiasco 
to another — especiailv in the company of

managed to keep up the worlds longest lifeline 
back to home. Plebe year. Bill's natural agility 
allowed him to become proficient at going over 
things; on the o-course or just AROUND the

that he had an excessive amount of free time 
on his hands, (much to the sorrow of his 
friends/victims). To fill this void be embarked 
on a number of hobbies and ventures of 
self-improvement, (much to the sorrow of his 
shower curtain). In the pursuit of these many, 
varied, and sometimes short-lived endeavors 
he became something of a master chef and a 
competent distiller. Finally Bill found a home 
in the Men 's Volleyball Club where he quickly 
rose to the rank of president and fashion 
consultant- Bill kept us guessing right up to 
service selection before he finally did the 
smart thing and went Navy Air So Bill's off 
to Pensacola with the cherished hope that 
major geographical upheavals will cause a 
large part of the southwest to fall into the sea. 
creating the potential for NAS. Los Alamos

21 Be considerate while visiting Sleeping in 
the shower is especially recommended as this 
prevents the messing up of an extra bed. 

31 Set an Academy record m the half mile. 

41 Follow the four rules of women to the

lines e.g.. While wading in the ocean, look 
down and ask two pretty girls. "Have y 'all seen

This gets you noticed.

pitcher. This makes riding in a Scout very

Everyone knows, however, that he actually 
fares from all over the VS., seeing as his 
father is a cohnel in that "other" senice. At 
any rate, he is an enthusiastic supporter of 
America's team. As a pleber, WHF was a 
sailing jock. His biggest problem was that be 
could not find a wetsuit thick enough to keep 
his poor old bones warm. He has this terrible 
problem called: "I fall out of boats a lot," a 
good thing he is not going surface line. WHF 
became quickly dissatisfied with this and 
decided to concentrate on academics and 
intramurals. As a naval architecture major, 
WHF saw it would be difficult to get through 
academically unscathed, so he joined the I'll 
pull a C out of my ass in the last week club 
and has been a thriving member ever since. 
In intramurals, WHF is never afraid to accept 
a challenge; be took on the coaching 
reaponsibilities of the 17th company B-ball 
team and led them to a stellar 1-9 season: not 
everyone can be taller than six feet, besides, 
they beat 18. WHF is probably moat famous 
for his recital of "1001 aggie jokes" to Lt. 
Aggie at our Christmas party. I think Lt. Aggie 
was not too amused. The thing about USNA 
which disappointed Freebird the most was its 
lack of a ski team. You see, William holds 
delusions of being Jean-Claude KiUy. Some 
day he may really have bis Austin -Healey, but 
I doubt it. I won 't say anything about his many 
wild women or several exotic religions because 
be must live with this for the remainder of his 
days. I do enjoy drinking with Freebird and 
I am sure that he will be a terrific Naval

leaving behind his cozy home, good food, and

legacy established at ser\ice academies. Dave's 
head was full of the idealism, moralistic virtue 
and youthful innocence that speaks for an 
entire generation. Needless to say, none of the 
above sur\'}ved during his four year residency 
in .Annapolis. 

Academics came easy to the Boy Wonder, 
as Dave managed to make Dean's list every 
now and then with a minimal amount of 
studying. Training as a Mecb-E provided 
enough of an edge for Dave-o to be screened 
and selected for nuke power. He has yet to 
realize that be can't go "o 
submarine, as Dave was 
during his four years. 

Despite years of being battered i 
rugby and soccer, Dave lived in relative 
comfort. He was known for his pioneering 
work in testing the Admin Conduct System by 
improvising fashionable uniform styles and 
room standards. These accomplishments 
earned him perennial status on a year-long 
restriction squad. 

Dave's easygoing nature disguised the woes

Dave blew in from the wastelands of 
Ken tucky. determined to perpetua te the 
warrior mystique. His goal was to serve his 
country as a Naval Officer. But the deeper 
reason for coming to Annapolis was to reap the 
benefits of a free education. This being the 
esse, then Dave has succeeded. Gifted with a 
keen awareness of his surroundings and a 
quick wit verging on the bizarre, Lonnie was 
a natural bull major. Able to form an opinion 
on any issue, Dave convinced the polisci 
department to let him complete the academics 
here in three and a half years. He escaped the 
last semester of Ciratie year as a Real College 
Student at Maryland. Even the extra workload 
(rack time) on regimental staff couldn't slow 
Dave in his pursuit of the ladies. Established 
in an Arnold base camp, Dave wandered in 
and out of weekend forays from Baltimore to 
Belgium, always on the Fun Wagon. 

It took Dave nearly three years to convince 
himself that the Academy was the right choice. 
Driving t^nks in the Army disappeared, since 
be discovered Navy air to be the true Gateway 
to a Great Way of Life. Visions of flying a 
mahogany supply corps desk faded at 
pre-coms. It seems Dave's eyesight just wasn't 
bad enough. 

A true friend and a great listener to any

Jim. haihng from Vernon. Texas, came to 
the "Trade School" via NAPS. At NAPS Jim 
specialized in Calculus and SaJve Regina His 
indispensible attendance during EMI, at 
company parties (The Point), and the EM 
club, will always be remembered. Jim, playing 
a very mean trumpet, became involved in the 
a ward winning band ' 'Sea Breeze ' ', bes t 
remembered for their break-out performance 
at "Fat Peoples". On 1-Day, Jim appeared to 
be in a haze, but he quickly recovered and 
started marching (as usual). He is a charter 
member of the "Timmy's Pocket, Sleeve, and 
Collar Club". Hawaii on Youngster Cruise was 
tropical. Joined the 3C Traveling Circus for 
2nd Class Summer. Jim started that awesome 
5 day bloat at Dam Neck that got 7 
accomplices sent back to Mother B. "Jim", the 
12 year old shouted, "my mommy wants to see 
you. " First Class Cruise Jim traveled to 
California and researched beaches. He then 
backpacked from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney. 
Snow, rain, and hungry bears eating all his 
supplies could not stop this intrepid back- 
woodsman. Academically Jim started slowly 
but gained speed. Culminated in a 4.0 his 
second class year. Jim was and is the solution 
to problems when the Gouge fails you. 
Athletically, he won the 165 lbs. plebe Smoker. 
During Batt Football he booted a 51 yard field 
goal. First class year he pumped iron, lots of 
it! Don 't tell Jim that 30000 sit-ups in 30 days 
is impoasible, he might have to prove you 

Jim: scholar, friend to all, trumpet player, 
iron man, athlete and submariner. Best of

If there's anybody in this world who you 
should look up to it's Cliff The "tower of 
power" ia the only person I know who has to 
undo the bottom of hia bed before he goes to 
sleep. Speaking of sleeping, we always 
wondered where CUff did his real sleepin'. 
Needless to say, this was a very well kept 
secre t. La tely, ho we ver. Cliff has been 
occasionally occupied with a beautiful South- 
ern Cal woman. She has a personality, too. 
Strange that this stellar basketball star chose 
CEC and is going to be stationed in the San 
Diego area. The CEC corps should be glad that 
Cliff is joining them. Not only is he a great 
guy, but he 's been able to get some of the best 
grades at this school. I can't think of anyone 
I'll miss more than this roommate of mine. I 
hope and know that he'll do a great job in 
anything he attempts. I'll miss ya ' bud. I hope 
everything turns out good. Good Luck. Thanks

One thing Dave quickly decided was that an 
engineering major was out - not only was he 
too tough on calculators but when the bull 
flows that easily, well, why waste it. Plebe year 
went well enough with numerous practical 
jokes being perfected upon "Cum " and Mark. 
Mac kept himself busy youngster summer - 
reaffirming his love of "the Corps" on the 
oldest ship in the fleet, inspecting the Myrtle 
Beach bars (both nightclub and iron), and 
hanging from the cords of his 'chute at 

The start of ac year met him with an acute 
case of youngsteritis and many more classics 
yet to come. Dave held a membership in the 
Hilton's artic beer drinker's club, was a 
resident of one of the "best" room's in the 
company and was always one to start studying 
early (in the morning). 

2/c year found Dave somewhat preoccupied 
with academics and his future Mrs., but still 
possessing a great sense of humor and a knack 
for making us laugh. 1/c cruise saw Dave pay 
bis dues over in Hawaii finally getting a 
chance to be with the few, the proud. After 
all didn 't he come to USNA for drill? Just ask 

' of the guy 


much time studying, 
Mac often did better by winging it. as his 
improving grades showed. His tenacity and 
ability on the playing field, in whatever sport, 
are virtually unequaled. ("I was just going over 
the ball - really I was "). Dave has always been 
a true friend and he and Bernadette are 
wished the very best in the future, Semper Fi.

swimming in Pasadena lately, Heckel?

Joseph Russ Moulton 


Fredericksburg, Virginia 

Physics, EDO 

During his first three years here Russ 
concentrated on ensuring that his last would 
be worthwhile. His reputation as a scholar was 
suddenly established after bis first ibut not 
last) close caU at the library — he knew it was 
getting close to taps when the lights went out 
and the doors refused to open. That 
emergency door alarm really did work, didn 't 
it Rubs? And so the 4.0'a came and went until 
we saw stars every time Russie walked by 

But firstie year brought the transition which 
was to shock us all. First it was Susie, the girl 
be never could seem to shake off after she 
discovered his charm. Then there came the 
wild summer in that new Mazda, further 
exposing him tv the delights of social 
extravaganza. Moat felt that Russ would never 
recover after the nukes discovered be could 
only teU if a traff.c light were red by the 
honking of nearby horns. Yet he bounced back 
with vigor, coaxing those EDO's into working 
at MIT. and yes of course coaxing DoUy as 
well. Wild parties soon followed; Russ 
especially liked hot tubs for socializing with 
the ladies, or keeping me busy with his date 
while he searched restaurant trash bags for a 
lost waUet- Soon we lost count of bis juggling 
methods. Of course. Susie could only stay til 
5 cause Tammy was due at 6. 

Yes. Russ. rU have that drink at your 
favorite place on Friday night. I'U see you in 
Boston thia fail.

Robin came to the Academy from South 
Jersey, exit 4. Having made it through the 
summer with relative ease, he immediately 
found a friend in Crutch. Robin spent the rest 
of the semester outside her door. A sailor at 
heart. Robin could usuaUy be found at the 
sailing center and. despite the evil influences 
in 20, Robin made it through plebe year. 
Youngster year saw a switch to the big boats 
and a very light academic load. The foUowing 
year brought Hood quals, dean's list, and an 
unexpected three day extension of spring 
break. So Robin, how bard is it to saU a 52' 
boat through an Atlantic 
storm? That summer brought even more 
sailing and aU night friends in port. During 
first class year, Robin's goals were a Master's 
at U of M and a degree in skiing while at InteU 
school. Robin will leave many friends behind 
and we aU wiah him the best of luck.

Mathematics, Surface Line 

JoJo came to the boat School from San 
.An tone by way of NAPS. Jose breezed through 
plebe summer and moved quite easily into the 
rigors of academic year Between Sat. 
afternoons at Pete's and Sat. nite at the Buss, 
he somehow found time to make the grades. 
He was never one to party alone so he found 
kindred spirits with which to associate. As a 
matter of fact. Sterno, Mills and Ginz were 
seldom without spirits. Remember "Guys. I'm 
gonna lose it" and "We're youngsters' sir!" Joe 
was always lucky and never got into trouble 
even when be got caught with girls or late for 
taps or both. Ten minutes to taps. Joe's Buzz 
with a girl. 0006, Joe shows up for taps and 
Mills takes the bit for letting him be late. 
Thanks Joe. I needed that! 

Youngster cruise found Joe in S.D. and in 
love. Cindy occupied much of his time that 
summer and next year. That year the boys 
road tripped to D.C. Remember "I need some 
M.F. wine" and Continental breakfast in the 
open air. 

Joe knew he was a first-class kind of guy 
even if he did have second class stripes. Thus, 
three-striper libs were in order. That's how be 
met Fat Sue, his pool playin' honey. 

When year ftnaUy came, it looked as if Joe's 
luck bad run out but not so. A brush with the 
Legs and an unwanted talk with the O.D. 
bought J.J. a pair of 5s. He somehow escaped 
with his life and only 1 weekend of restriction. 
An appointment with the atomic admiral and 
Joe knew nuke was not for him. He decided 
to keep his PlasticHead and not turn green so 
he went conventional surface. Joe's off to 
Pearl to find a Japanese model. I know he will 
do weU in whatever be seta himself to. Good 
luck and never forget the fun we bad, Swo Bro.

Mark A. Prusinski 


Litchfield, Minnesota 

Aerospace Engineering, Navy 


Mark Prusinski is in some ways, well, a bit 
different than the norma] person. For 
example, most people get obnoxious when 
they're drunk; Pru is obnoxious when he's 
sober, but mellow when he's drunk. Most 
people crack up. their parents' car: Pru's 
mother cracked up his car. One way in which 
Mark is not unique, however, is in bis desire 
to Hv F-14'a. Mark knew he wanted to become 
a pilot as earlv as junior high school and 
shaped his career at the Academy around this 
desire. When it came time to pick a major, he 
chose Aerospace Engineering, figuring it was 
as close as be could get to the real thing for 
the moment. Another unusual thing about 
Mark is that he did well In this major. So well, 
in fact, that be found himself sweating bullets 
when the prospect of a nuclear draft was 
brought up. Mark was, not, however, so 
obsessed with flying that he couldn 't take time 
out to enjoy other things. He joined the Glee 
Club and for four years terrorized the United 
States with its subsidiary, the "We're There 
Club." Y'oungstfr year he even went out with 
the same girl more than twice. To commemor- 
ate the occasion he made her bis girlfriend, 
and they've been going out ever since. In 
keeping with Pru s tradition, AnnaMaria s 
parents hate Mark, so this may turn into a 
permanent affair The other love of Mark's life 
is his car, a British- Leyland MGB. His mother 
put it into the shop for the first time, but 
decidedly not for the last time: that car has 
already failed to start in two countries. True 
to form, Pru got what be wanted for service 
selection, and will be reporting to Pensacola 
one fine day m July. We wish him all the best 
and send him off with one of his favorite 
toasts: "You can pick your friends, and you 
can pick your nose, but you can't pick your 
friends nose. "

Fort Lewis, Washington 

English, Navy Air 

Mark came to the Academy from Rhode 
Island, or Kansas, or Alabama or . . . well it 
depended upon what day it was. Being an 
Army brat I guess be got used to moving a lot. 
He moved so much the plebes could never 
keep up with his podunk. 

A cross-country runner in high school, he's 
the kind of guy who calls a 5 minute mile 
"slow"- Off the track Mark has a habit of being 
late. In fact be didn't show up for plebe 
summer till Parent's Weekend. You can bet 
be wasn't ever late for a haircut appointment. 
That's because he never had one. 

Rooming with an artist was fun. Everything 
I tried to do in a simple, effective manner. 
Mark would change so it would be elegant and 
have "significance". His creativeness somehow 
seemed to brighten up a rather standard way 
of life. 

Mark was a sort of "World Traveler". You 
know "Join the Navy and Sea the World". 
That he did and he got a chance to see Italy, 
the Philippines, and Japan. He went and 
bought one of those blasted imported cars. 
Ever try to fit a 64' lineman into a Toyota"" 

Mark's wanted to fly all bis life, and God 
blessed him with an early flight school date. 
God truly worked a miracle by leaving the 9 
July AI date open just for you! He's a true 
servant of the Lord, always putting Jesus first.

I have known only two people from Park

the Naval Academy. Not only has he survived 
every poeaible board thrown together, but be 
haa also survived every midshipman, other 
than male, who has ever crossed his path 
Many of us regret that this Navy "basketball 
atar" is now actually serious about someone 
Come on! This is the same person who 
practiced his delicate art on every imaginable 
surface. The astro-turf the fantail of a YP, 
cars. hiB room, probably your room and BOQ's 
to name a few. Oh yeah, golf courses too. Get 
the picture! Seriously though. Rob has spent 
hie years here accomplishing things that no 
other person has ever attempted. He has 
virtually rewritten Navy's basketball records, 
and who can forget, during plebe year, that 
come from behind victory over Army which he 
single handedly performed. Many of us will be 
sorry to see Rob go his own way He should 
do a fine job as a career officer in the LPD

FFLAM, the mystic spiritualist imbued the 
best qualities of the Roughriders - speak softly 
and cArry a big stick. After arriving here from 
Yankee Land, he found that the academic 
curriculum would offer no challenge (a 
perennial Dean's List member) so Rob turned 
to sports for entertainment and to satisfy hia 
quest for physical contact. He spent his plebe 
year pulling for Navy, but finding little 
physical violence be moved on to the Karate 
Club. Here Rob found a home for two years. 
Noone, especially his roommates, was free 
from Fflam's frequent demonstrations of his 
latest Chuck Norris Kung-Fu round house 
death kick. But to Rob's credit he always knew 
when to pull his punches. But this was still 
not enough, so as a finale Rob joined the 
Hockey team where he could thoroughly abuse 
human bodies and to his dismay, his own. 
Away from the academy Rowse was a first 
round draft pick of the Peg & Earl home for 
wayward mids. It was there that Rob fully 
developed the talents of beer chugging and 
csble viewing. In seeking refuge from the daily 
tria ls and tribulations of life, veg-TV was a 
godsend. RRR was also no stranger to the 
opposite aex. especially to a certain Puerto

Mike came to the Academy from Cameron. 
Texas recruited for rifle. But rifle didn't start 
until November, so Mike faded into the

Once asked for the correct pronunciation of 
hi3 name, Mike gained another, "like Peach.

Second Class year saw Mike finally get his

Craig came to Navy from Middletown, NJ 
always willing to remind us he was really from 
Illinois . . . we're still not sure why. Pebe year, 
for Craig was not quite the challenge it was 
for his sweat roommate. He soon learned that 
he could skate by. using one standard answer 
to every question asked .. "AAh" After 
validating most of Plebe academics. Craig 
moved on to second class courses. But be 
always found time to lend a helping hand to 
anyone with a question. In fact. Craig spent 
more time helping everyone else than he did 
doing his OH77 work. Youngster year opened 
many doors for Craig as he finally made Glee 
Club- He soon learned the finer points of social 
drinking and the many uses of such things as 
the common drawer. Craig became a founding 
father of the "We're their club" and reached 
his high point by pouring a beer on his head 
without any one ever knowing. Craig drove 
into first class year with his "Shelby" and a 
pitcher of Manhattans, determined to live up 
to the motto. "If you ain 't having fun vou ain 't 
doing It right"- Craig will no doubt do it right 
at nuke school and continue to enjoy life to

have fun than be number one and work too 
hard. Hail to the chiefs

Buddy developed a modicuim of self-control

Gary T. Swain 

Orlando, Florida 

General Engineering, NFO 

Gary Swain left no doubt in anyone's mind 
when be came to the Academy that he was 
from the South- He had a southern accent, a 
rebel flag, and pictures of his aouped-up 
pickup truck- Gary never loat his love for the 
South, but it soon became apparent that this 
was but one of the unique characteristics 
which were to mark his career as a 
midshipman. One of the moat obvioua of these 
was his talent for hurting himself First it was 
a separated shoulder Then it was a 
reaeparated shoulder. Then it was an 
operation on a perpetually separated shoulder. 
Then, when Gary was finally getting over the 
operation, he hurt bis leg skiing The most 
amazing injury of all. however, was the broken 
foot Gary sustained while fencing. Fencing!! 
perhaps Gary s southern background had 
something to do with his success with girls. 
Lots of girla. Gary waa so successful, in fact, 
that on one occasion be found himself bringing 
one girl to a Navy football game and another 
to the tailgater afterward. Of the numerous 
girls who entered his life, however, only two 
stayed for any significant period of time. 
Gary'a high school aweetbeart Dee Anne was 
a large part of his thoughts plebe and 
youngster year, and from second class year on 
be was seldom seen without Ellen at his aide. 
Despite the diatractions caused by his 
injuriea and his girls. Gary found time to have 
a successful career with the Academy. He 
progressed from a "typical" plebe to a 
"mellow" youngster to "that flaming second 
class. " Somehow no one waa surprised when 
Gary was made Company Commander first 
class year; he had seemed destined for the job 
since be waa a plebe. Destiny does not 
neceasarily preclude occasional fun and games 
however. Eighteen plebes will long remember 
a rude, wet awakening in the middle of the 
night. As Gary takes off on his new career as 
a Naval Flight Officer, he ia followed by a 
heartfelt prayer from all bis friends: "May the 
injuries atop but may the girls keep coming. "

Bill thundered & crashed his way into 
USNA in the sumwer of 80 like a bull m a 
china shop - and he's been plowing through 
things ever since. He never opened his books 
but always got those great grades. Of course, 
there wasn't much to study about the 
split-back offense anyway. 

Somehow " Weeds " made it through plebe & 
youngster year without succumbing to the lure 
of civilian football or financiai prospects . , . 
these management majors often have delu- 
sions of corporate executiveness. 

Maybe Navy's Academic All- American will 
someday be on WaiJ St.. but, like the 
Academy, he'd still rather move it all to 
California, his home state ("You mean you

Grand Blanc, Michigan 

Applied Science, Navy Pilot 

Kent came to the boat school from the 
heartland of America. Red-dog's alternatives 
out of high school were to work either for the 
Navy or for General Motors. With visions of 
starring on the tennis team, Kent arrived full 
of exuberance. Unfortunately, tennis was not 
to be. Kent faded into the background for the 
rest of plebe year. To all but his classmates. 
Dogger was the Invisible Man. It was during 
youngster year that Dog's wires short circuited 
and a fuse blew, as he found a solution to his 
academic problems in the form of a computer. 
From EE to Computer Science in one easy 
course. Without tennis, bicycle racing became 
Kent 's next sports interest. However, the thrill 
of the uphill climb didn't last too long 
Leadership came easy to Kent as youngster 
company commander and as a squad leader 
the following year. Kentley's real personality 
surfaced Second Class year while rooming with 
Mike, when beer displaced blood in his body, 
especially with women around. First Class year 
brought Company commandersbip and deal- 
ing with The Lieutenant. In addition to 
classes, hockey occupied Kent's free time. Ace 
nearly joined the nukes, until leveler heads 
prevailed. Kent will make his career with hia 
head in the clouds as a Navy jet jockey. All 
of us wish the ever friendly Kent the best of 
luck in all he does. 



Barry Robert Witte 
The Bear 
Albany, New York 
Chemistry, Surface (Nuclear 

Mild mannered Barry Witte. the pride of 
Loudonville, New York (fortunately it's on the 
other side of the river from Troy) came to 
USNA with the purest of intentions, known 
only to himself. It took us all a little while to 
figure out where he was coming from. Little 
did the men of 17 know that once this lad put 
on the uniform he would become "The Bear 
of Witte". The two greatest obstacles for Barry- 
were memorizing irrelevant plebe rates and 
Bleeping. This sleepless wonder would detect 
the change in air pressure when someone 
opened the door and be awake enough to tell 
you about it (as so often he did). Testimony 
can be given by all those on youngster YP 
cruise with Barry, who could not sleep 
underway. In spite of it all. the Bear was 
always good for his dry sense of humor. Who 
do you think made the fifth wing smell so bad 
that Friday morning? Chemistry was good for 
something (like retaliation) besides all those 
hours in the lab. Who could forget the man 
who turned company banking into big 
(non-profit) business youngster year? 

Barry went about his duties first class year 
with a zest matched by few others. He is a 
reliable and trusted friend. Best wishes for a 
successful career. See ya in Orlando. 


Geoffrey Alan Zimmer 


Duesseldorf, West Germany 

Physics, Nuclear Power 

Plebe year and Bradford 's history claaa were 
our proof of Zim 's naval heritage and 
Dusseldorf was one of the easier hometowns 
for us to learn. A die-hard nuke from 
childhood, "to the core", he played with his 
model sub for three years until Admiral 
McKee asked for sailing instructions over tea. 
And I was a smack? 

Alas, submarines were not his only love as 
he went through several girls worldwide before 
finding that the girl he'd left in Paris was the 
right one after all. First Julie, then Kari and 
finally the gorgeous Frederique. Love that 
accent. A ring, fur coat, daily letters, a photo 
album and long distance phone calls — no 
wonder he calls her "the wife". Not bard to 
believe he grew up with the girl. 

From women Geoff moved into fast cars. 
Keep babying that Scirocco, Zims, but I 
wouldn't wash her more than twice a week. 

Geoff was by no means a playboy, however, 
holding quite a reputation for acing courses. 
Maybe his genius came from those Genesis 
lyrics or those weekly episodes of "Cheers ". By 
the way Zims, how many 4.0's did you pull? 
I lost count. 

Well roomie, it hasn't been a picnic but we

Bob flowed in from the quiet, peaceful town 
of Laa Vegas. He was stunned with the fast 
paced Crabtown; his first encounter with 
Maryland girls wasn 't until the night before 
1-Day. His first day here set the tone for bis 
career as he was caught in the rack twice by 
his squad leader. Bob fooled most everybody 
during plebe year . . . not by behaving, but by 
not getting caught. He and Spinuzzi fit 
together like Jock itch an cruei. Bob began 
dragging people into restriction during plebe 
year. Kiiroy was the Hrst (during the old 75 
and 2 days). Bob wore stars for one brief 
fleeting semester, then he began escaping 
SQPR's that began with a 1. Bob earned his 
Black "N" one Youngster Friday night along 
with Fred. Face, and Kilroy when they all had 
a simultaneous craving for tavern pretzels 
("We had a little beer sir, but that was to wash 
down the pretzels!"). The fun ended only 
yards from the wall with Bob bleeding from 
the head yelling "Go guys, go!" and shielding 
his eyes from the policeman's flashlight. Bob 
bad a knack for being there for some girls ' last 
night at the academy and other girls' first 
night out without their boyfriends, thus came 
the name Snake. Bob did his beat to re-earn 
the name . over and over again. Destined to 
be a pilot in the Aiken tradition and a 
fun-lover in the Lustre tradition, we ail wish 
him the best of luck.

Dave, Brums 
Camarillo, California 
Political Science, Navy Pilot 

Dave came to the Academy not knowing 
what he was getting into — he bad just heard 
that this was the place to go to be a pilot. He 
arrived from Southern California a little too 
laid back and mellow — at least for Serene 
Eighteen, with its unique definition of 
professionalism. 0615 was way too early for 
Brums, so he spent plebe year sleeping 
through classes. Sailing kept him off company 
tables for most of the year, but not out of 
trouble with the second class. He did all right 
after he learned how to play the game, and 
life became much easier when his roommate 
SuperPlebe transformed into the Face after 
the first year. They had some good times in 
the Wholigan Room, but didn't get too much 
studying done. Brums learned how to get 
around the rules quick enough, and was always 
lucky enough not to get into too much trouble. 
Though he lived by the law of "You Rate 
What You Get Away With." he took a little 
long to figure out that it works better if you 
don't tell everyone about it Well it was an 
interesting way to spend some time on the way 
to flight school.

Every once in a while, a guy comes into this 
place with one personality, and throughout his 
"sentence" here he adopts a variety of equally 
attractive faces. This was especially true of 
Dave Plebe year saw this guy as a true sweat. 
So much in fact, that he refused to cost the 
Academy $1200 in sand-blasting a "re- 
decorated" LA -area and Herndon monument. 
Youngster year he really relaxed and took 
advantage of the free time all Y'oungsters 
receive. He wisely spent his time designing 
"coat-hanger-like" items, and climbing the 
Wall. His Tirst (that's right, I said first) Class 
A came about when he and 3 buds had an 
unquenchable thirst one Friday night. (Oh 
well, who needs liberty during June week!) 
There's a rumor that Dave ended Youngster 
year as winky trunk-rider, but we better not 
mention that here. Second class year. Dave 
again "minned out," but he still managed to 
team up with Brums and become a truly 
dedicated Wholigan. Upon reaching his last 
year of Confinement, we lost Dave to the world 
of the non-returnables. Right again, Dave fell 
full force into LOVE. He loved this beautiful 
girl so much, that be was billing to give up 
a half semester of liberty for her. Yes. another 
Class A was upon him. (If they only knew just 
how much he really got away with) Here's

negat endeavor but you were determined Wei! 
the following year the axe boards made up 
your mind for you and you ate your ortj

I always told you to open up and talk more 
about anything, but even if you had you 
probably wouldn 't have gotten a word in with 
my constant yakking about Mike, the mile 
run. and nothing. You always listened! 

You were affectionately refered to as 
"MOM"- As the most stabilizing factor in our

You really shocked everyone when they 
found out you drank J&B on the rocks at your 
famous parties. If they only knew about that

Larry lived his plebe year on the edge of 
trouble. He excelled in the physical part of 
plebe summer, but the mental part landed him 
in come-arounds with "killer" Coons He and 
the boys got their time from Timmy's down 
to 7 minutes. He was in constant danger as 
mediator in Brums i-s Face room fights. At the 
year ending Ocean City trip he got several 
scars and two nicknames - Spiderman and 
Fred. Fred stuck. Youngster year Fred should 
have jumped the fence when he had the 
chance. He shouldn't have joined the PBP

dispel a grave misconception. Paul is. in fact, 
a very romantic person. Youngster year saw 
Paul with his first Academy relationship, this 
was. however, short lived. Never one to accept 
defeat. Paul plunged into the sea of femininity 
and found Rocko. But this was. alas, to be but 
a way station another road to true love. Paul 
left Rocko during second class year and took 
up nith the Iron Maiden. The Iron Maiden has 
Paul so enthralled in love and excitement that 
he has not gone in search of anything else and 
the couple are still together. 

Paul's attitude toward leadership inspires 
awe in all who got the opportunity to observe 
it in action. During Plebe year he did a 
comprehensive study of the "Nairn Method" 
of leadership. He attempted to utilize this 
method during youngster year but found it 
difficult to adapt to his lifestyle. During 
second class year Paul stood at the forefront 
of leadership technology with his own

worked so well that many who were under his

and nuts. He quickly obtained the friendship 
of Mr Spaghetti who made it his personal 
duty to God and Country to drive poor little 
Davey out of the Academy. David survived 
Plebe year with the winning combination of 
a high and tight haircut highlighted by radical

year was highlighted by pleasant high-volume 
chats with his roommate Cack that climaxed 
one day in a lively pre-quarters wrestling-

Karl arrived at the Academy from Mile 
High Country full of equally high hopes and 
enthusiasm. However. Plebe Summer and a 
roommate who bore a striking resemblance to 
Willard quickly shocked htm back to reality. 
Plebe year was kind of bumpy, but it didn't 
go too badly for him once he mastered the 
third law of the Navy. Too bad that wasn't 
until mid-April. Youngster year began with a 
bang and a crash: namely the sounds of the 
mirror in his room breaking into a million 
pieces. It became a victim of Karl's frustration 
after another losing battle with Statics. 
Second class year found him rooming with 
Fred. The two of them were quite compatible, 
one of the reasons being that neither believed 
in uttering a syllable in the morning until after

Dan still can't figure out why ail those second

them hia ability to use sign language. That

Youngster year brought Dan new wisdom and 
good grades. He attributed his great academic 
achievement to the philosophy "don't try to 
learn the . just take the gouge and run. " 

Dan gained his new name during this era by 
showing his prowess at scarfing Cheese Nips

in the morning. The big Cheese was born. 
Cheese had a tough start on second class year 
by amassing 40 days before it even began. 
Fortunately hia Actramid acquired Val and 
varsity lacrosse kept him out of trouble for the 
rest of the year. First class year Cheese joined 
several clubs including the backahaft Chiefs

the name "Spanky" and the name stuck. 
Spank aspired to play football at Navy. His 
dream was dealt a serious blow when he lost 
the weight equivalent of a subcompact 
automobile during plebe summer He spent his 
plebe year on the meat squad while his 
evenings were taken playing room b-baU with 
the firsties. He still contends that he had a 
plebe year though. Youngster year saw Spank 
drinking, dipping, fighting and eating his way 
to a rotund 230 and the nickname "Fatman". 
On weekends that year he would do one of the 
things: stare people into fighting him at 
Dablgren, get steered from a fight by his 
roommates, or fight his roommates. Spank's 
last encounter with alcohol saw him break up 
a party early, dislocate a classmate's shoulder, 
harass a duty section, start a fight with an out 
of company youngster, and, finally, get 
knocked on his butt by Fred. That evening 
landed him an all expenses paid vacation at 
Bathesda. Md. Spank stopped drinking early 
second class year. He then quit smoking, 
dipping, swearing, gambling, and Burger King 
food in rapid succession. Tbelma was the 
happiest to see her good little boy return. 
Thomas battled all his internal difficulties and 
won (except against bis weakness for women). 
All who know hi m salute him for his bravery 
and his honesty. He will be a truly great navy

She came to the Boat School wide-eyed with 
wonder and looking for an engineering degree. 
Plebe summer, however, taught her the rigors 
of the system, and as the toll for 34 increased. 
Heidi 's determination to s urvi ve becam e 
evident. Her true personality became bidden 
to those who knew her as new and threatening 
challenges showed their faces. Youngster year 
saw a relaxation of sorts, and the no\ice 
engineer struggled her way through shoals of 
Thermo. Dynes. The spring of youngster year, 
however, brought a new beginning and a 
twisted knee. Despite the disappearance of 
some roommates and the transparency of 
another. Heidi showed that the 3.0 goal could 
be achieved. Second Class summer brought 
her crashing into a carrier deck in an A -6 and 
sending ATP- IB messages in the middle of the 
night - waking everyone up in every YP CIC. 
Yet she survived again only to plunge 
headlong into Cables. Mat Sci. Reactor 
Physics and. yes. even a bout with the Rocket. 
Despite it all, Heidi managed to survive in a 
place where the numbers 3 and 27 were mixed 
up. First class year started out well, and she 
was all set for the Surface Navy, until a nasty 
tumble with a stone sent her in Supply's way.

as she really is — a very Cine officer and person

Through an unending display of fireworks Roy 
kept bis working heartrate down to a steady 
25, staying on the football team long enough 
to collect his Liberty Bowl watch and tlnd out 
what surgery is all about. That was about the 
time he began to hang out with aoopahs - 
respectable gentlemen with names like Hog. 
Edbo. Big Cheese. Spanky, Dirty, Schleem, 
Kack and Smurf. 

I lost track of Roy for awhile after he 
became a math major, bought stock in Burger 
King, and brought his pillow into the 
wardroom. The Commandant woke him up 
long enough in 1983 to get him to be 
Regimental Adjutant during plebe summer 
and kept him awake long enough for one set 
as Company Commander Roy became 
legendary as the co-author of the Buzzword 
Board and the Morrow papers, reaching the 
pinnacle of stardom by bringing Jose and Jake 
together as the dynamic duo. Ma and Pa 
Sexton, you done good. See you in the fleet.

Myrtle Point, Oregon 

Electrical Engineering, Nuclear 


Rick came to the Academy from a tiny town 
in Oregon (somewhere towards one of the 
corners} and was in constant awe of the 
built-in showers and indoor bathrooms. He 
also was extremely proud to announce to his 
friends when his town finally got a telephone 
(down at "Bessie's Cafe") His parents had a 
tough time naming him since moat of the 
names they could think of were already taken 
. . . by various barnyard creatures. After we 
fmaily got him to take the picture of his 
tractor off his blotter. Rick settled down to the 
routine of bells and not roosters. From the 
very beginning we knew Rick was special, and 
he never let us forget it. He taught us such 
useful phrases as "golly-gee" and "holy-moly" 
and could always be counted on to say 
something nice m any situation. Despite 
continuous bad-influence by 
Rick managed to keep himself and the i 
pretty clean 

Then came the fateful day when oui 
met his beloved; Lisa. From that day on he 
had a continuous gleam m his eye and the 
number of days 'till his wedding day 
memorized. To Rick and Lisa we wish the best 
of everything and a special life together

Scott spent most of his formative years in 
the small aggregarian tosvn of Turlock, in 
central California, where he continually had 
difCiculty distinguishing between cows and 
women At the young age of 19 years. Scott 
was foolish enough to walk in to see a Marine 
Corps recruiter Being a tyv'cal USMC 
recruiter, he shanghied Scott to the East oast. 
In boot camp, the Corps removed the hayseeds 
from Scott's hair along with all of the 
surrounding hair. At that time the Corps told 
Scott he was too dumb to do anything in the 
serxice except talk to computers Scott's 
ineptitude at being a marine, enabled him to 
be selected for NAPS. And at Newport, he 
proved himself worthy of midshipmen stan- 
dards, and was appointed to the Naval 
Academy. At this point Scott made a decision 
to give up completely on "Tamale Hustlers" 
and go for RN's (Registered Nypho's). After 
his initial year of mandatory celibacy. Scott 
set out to conquer the world of women with 
his usual dogged determination, and met with 
his usual luck - bad Luckily Scott, in a 
drunken stupor, chanced upon an equally 
drunken female at "Frannies. " who eventually 
consented to meet him again. As it turned out 
she was an RN (Registered Nurse - oh! so 
closei. Since then, he has forced her to spend 
as much time as possible with him by the only 
means he could think of: an offer of marriage, 
a diamond, a car. and his paycheck for the 
next 100 years. Scott selected Marine Pilot 
because of his masochistic tendencies. He and 
Cheryl should be quite happy together.

If Anne had been an average mid, then 18th

grabbed catnaps and hours of sleep whenever 
possible. However. Anne definitely was 
noticed! She generated fun times and laughs 
whenever she went to Franny O's. a party, or 
formations. Drill practices were some of the 
few times when Anne wasn 't a barrel of laughs; 
perhaps she just didn 't like being told 
repeatedly to correct a physically non- 
correctable right-shoulder-arms. 

Successful completion of her mile run was 
the green light each semester for Anne to 
"coast. " After the mile everything was "cake" 
for Anoe and there once again was a variety 
of conversation topics in the room. 

At Anne's squad party plebe year, Alfalfa 
started to show that he wasn't "so shy." It 
didn't take him long to realize that he "loved 
every 'HI thing she does." After Patch, the 
Ac-Board, NJIT, summer cruises. DCS, 
SWOS. and service selection, Anne and Mike 
are destine to have happy, smooth years 
ahead. Sorry guys — she's taken!!! 

I know that I'll have many great memories 
of Anne at USNA land Hawaii). How could

humor, and friendship? Take care, God Bless, 
and watch out for Miss Piggy.

Eki was a local boy from Timonium arriving

of the world. As a member of the Na\y cross 
country team until he escaped from the "cult

hearts of the local females. By second class 
year, as a Political Science major. Ed already 
had well defined academic and career goals 
(PoU Sci. QPR high'^ Maybe, but can he argue 
without his fingers?}. Ed was the quiet one 
who came out of his shell with a few Iced Teas 
and although he was a bull major, he always 
showed great prowess as an engineer, like the 
night at Fran's when he began to explore all 
those lovely curves of form. He will be 
traveling down to Orlando to become one of 
those straight-laced nuclear power boys, but 
if I know Ed. he'll have a lot of partying to 
do before he's through.

Most people attend college to experience

Karen's case, she didn't realize that USNA 
was the wrong place to do the former, but she 
attempted the latter with semi-seriousness. 
Living at Hubbard Hall during her first two 
years and at Sampson during the last two. she 
avoided Bancroft with some success. Trusting 
in the belief that "it will get done eventually", 
many a night's study began with a cribbage 
game. All-nighters before any technical exam 
(how many times did you fall asleep with the 
light on?) allowed her to escape work from 
Michelson and Chauvenet for most of the 
semester. But she must admit that the trips 
to France and Germany made up for a YP and 
a Tender out of Norfolk. After those 
wonderful cruises she knew she was not meant 
for Surface Line, but with arms too short to 
be an NFO. what was left? Hope it works out.

Aerospace Engineering, NFO 

Hoo-ya came to Canoe U. from Seattle — 
A town he never abandoned, even after sports 
team after sports team went down in defeat 
and bis city was enveloped in a cloud of dust 
from Aft. St. Helena. Paul came in to his own 
youngster year when he managed to combine 
a 3.4 QPR in Aero with time on the sailing 
team (Remember the Delaware Regatta?). But 
Paul wasn 't content with just those 
achievements, so be started a second career as 
a tour guide for the Ho Chi Minb trail. There 
were no doubts where Paul was going when he 
would leave at 2300 dressed in cammies and 
a black watch cap followed by several of his 
friends. Perhaps it was a foreshadow of his 
airborne days to come. Paul's excursions onto 
the 2-4 ledge certainly foreshadowed bis career 
in aviation. Whether he was savoring a cigar 
on the roof under the stars or bombing his 
favorite mids with snowballs, or brasaoing hia 
initials onto the copper ledge, the open air and 
high altitudes beckoned Paul to adventure. On 
the other hand, that after-taps run to the ice 
cream store was one costly adventure. So 
much for two weeks of leave . . . Ouch! But 
don't forget; he who will not risk cannot win. 
During second and first class years, Paul 
worked for stars and stripes. As such, he 
pursued his second class duties as CAO with 
a vengeance for which he was rewarded (?) 
with the job as company adjutant. Paul 
decided early in his naval career that the very 
young girls of Annapolis should be blessed 
with his acquaintance, so he became a 
frequent patron of Disco Dahlgren. This 
served Paul well until he fell for a young lass 
from Notre Dame during his first class year. 
Service selection night saw Paul pick up an 
NFO billet and a severe hangover We all wish 
Paul the beat of luck in bis naval career and 
in life. P.S. Plebes. today ia really Hoo-ya's

When Scott came to us from Sin City and

should have used that extra time to learn to 
sing, Scott, you never could during plebe 
summer. And then there's your ears and that 
haircut that gained you notariety as a celebrity 
look-alike. Second semeater youngster year 
saw you moving in with me so I wouldn 't have 
to walk down the hall for E. I. and then you 
left those bottle rockets out during a formal 
inspection and got ua each a 4(XX) aeries! (Good 
thing for both of us the Cdr like me.) Who's 
got control of the stereo? And what's this 
about you coming home from cruise two weeks 
early and catching your parents moving 
without telling you ? Second class year saw our 
first Christmas tree — and one of the first in 
the Brigade that year! We spent most of that 
year dodging Lock'em'up. First class year 
came and you were putting up Christmas 
decorations in August. Maybe you were hoping 
Santa would bring you a car that worked. In 
fact, your car worked so little that you had to 
register another firstie's in your name so you 
would have something to drive. You didn 't get 
to spend much time in the room either, 
between getting your masters at Maryland and 
giving E. I. to room 2401. (But you did fmd 
time to break my snake and kill my corn 
plant.) How do you explain that "D" in 
Diffy-Q's at Maryland? You always came 
straight back after classes. And about your

Bill, or The Bluecbow as I affectionately 
dubbed him. comes from Everytown, V.S.A. 
No kidding. Bill has lived in more places than 
any guy I know Whatever happened to him 
during those pre-Academy years, it sure 
prepared hirn for this place - minus plebe 
summer BiU was known for his twelve digit 
alpha code during plebe ho 's, and his own stvle 
of chow calls - "Sir. you now have the menu 
for evening meal is Neeb's loaf, mash um. 
carrots, um. etc'!" Personally I thought it was 
out of hne when this was still going on the day 
before Parents Weekend- Bluecbild settled 
right down, though, to become one of the 
military maies of Canoe V. No guy ever had 
this place aired as well as he did. nor will 
anyone be able to completely fill his shoes in 
the future. Seriously, Bill's grades were never 
great, but then again he was a Mech E- with 
less hours logged studying, and more hours 
logged at Sammy's Bar than any Mid ever 
Inspections were cake for Bill I've never seen 
a guy come back from P E-. shower, shave, rig 
a uniform, and then proceed to win color man 
in the platoon every single time - it's Riplev's 
Not only was Bill on a first name basis with 
the USNA janitorial force, but he also knew 
every bartender, waitress, and busboy in town 
In his spare time I frequently found Bill at 
Fran's buying rounds for everyone and then 
at the end of the evening producing a $7.50 
bar tab. Bill has been both a baby brother and 
a pet to me I love to introduce hiw to wy 
dates because they all find him so cute and 
cuddly. Bill's ability to care for people will 
take him far. God blessed me when he brought 
you into my life Billy-Catch.

Annapolis, Maryland 

Operations Analysis, Surface 


1 will now relate to you all the story of my 
roommate, if I would. One day our hero. Kurt, 
awoke to find that he had graduated from high 
school, and his blissful days spent "borrowing" 
champagne from the 0-Club and throwing 
nocturnal parties on the Parade Field werf 
over. Realizing that he hadn't given (<kj much 
thought to his future, be decided to look for 
a place to go to college. He started by looking 
out of his bedroom amdow, and being 
uncannily perceptive. Special K noticed that 
he lived on the very grounds of such an 
institution of higher learning. So on July 8. 
1980. he walked across the street and became 
Midshipman Brandouiat, VSN. The first thing 
that stuck our hero about the Academy was 
the wide assortment of activities into which he 
could become involved There were so many, 
in fact, that he thought it would be unwise to 
spread himself too thin. So he decided not to 
do anything. Of course. I'm not saying that 
good ol' Kind-A Bad had no interest in 
"extracurricular activities" He'd finished a 
book in high school, and planned on reading 
at least one more m college. And on any given 
day. one could always find Tinkles sampling 
a vintage Miller, while contemplating the 
social morality involved in making a choice 
between watching MASH or Happy Days. Not 
to mention the fact that Kool happened to be 
a \irtuo80 tenor, singing a shower-rendition of 
"Rapper's Delight " for a certain first class who 
will go unnamed. (Hope you liked it. Vic') And 
then, of course, there was Stephanie . Best 
of luck in the Real World of both of you! And 
Kurt, you're the best friend I ever had Some 
day they'll invent the words to express just 
how much our friendship means to me. Take 
care, buddy-

Jeff didn't have to travel far to seek 
knowledge (as well as discipline, profession- 
alism, etc.) at the college level In fact he 
almost didn't have to leave the fine city of 
Baltimore, home of the world series cham- 
pions. This made things very convenient as his 
girlfriend. Lisa (soon-to-be-hride) was not just 
a phone call away, but a few miles away This 
situation seemed to help Jeff out in his first 
year as he made it through plebe year almost 
effortlessly The one problem Jeff did have. 
however, was a major knoan as "Aero" .After 
finding out this field of study required 
excessive labs, calculations with calculators, 
and staying up after 11:00. Jeff realized bis 
love for the English language was greater than 
he ever could have imagined. Yes. the English 
major was what suited him best (and his 
roommate on occasion). He would soon attend 
the majority of his classes in the dreaded 
Sampson Hall. Jeff as a midshipman was a 
very well-rounded individual and his efforts 
were not just limited to academic excellence 
No, not at all For example, as a youngster he 
was given several stripes one semester and 
given the duties of the Brigade Operations 
Officer. We were all glad to see be soon came 
down from the clouds Jeff also headed the 
Churchill Society as President, played guitar 
for "Sea Breeze", making Ekidie Van Halen 
very envious, and fenced for Na\y Jeff also 
displayed his love for skiing by spending 
numerous paychecks on ski attire He certainly 
received most votes for best dressed on the 
slopes. Jeff slowed dorni during his first class 
year, which seemed to be a change for the 
better. He set his priorities which were Lori. 
taping Greaseman and studying. Jeff chose Air 
for service selection So by dropping Aero, he 
never gave up his love for flight, just the 
theory behind it. Good luck in all you do. Jeff

Dan-o showed up at the Naval Academy 
caught in a well known stereotype: The 
Brooklyn sailor. You know, the big guy in all 
the war movies with the funny way of talking. 
It took us a while to realize that he was 
actually speaking English. It was just a 
different dialect knon-n as Brooklynese. Dan-o 
brought a big appetite with him and to make 
sure he would get enough to eat, he made sure 
he got not one. but two sponsors. He also has 
a loving Mom back home who realized that 
even his multiple sponsors would have a hard 
time keeping him fed. so she sends him King 
Neptune size chow packages. Dan-o's locker ia 
affectionately known as "The Deli". Speaking 
of food, we won 't forget those New York bagels 
and the late night hot dogs during 3/c finala. 
"More Beer" was Dan-o's advice to everyone. 
When the Navy issued Dan his undershirts 
they made a mistake and left the sleeves on. 
Dan-o always took charge when it came to 
planning a party. Hey "Big Guy", can I let the 
word "party" pass without mentioning 
Florida. Spring Break, and Disney World? 
Hey, to keep Cooter awake you gotta stay 
awake. And how about 2/c summer when you 
took the guys to New York and showed them 
all the dives in town. Also remember: 
SNOOPY!, backgammon, the dry bar. the fire 
hydrant, your STBD list (a true surface liner), 
ice-teas and 7&7'a running with your weighta, 
and of course Goat Court during Army week. 
Dan-o was always the first to put up bis X-mas 
decorations although I always tried to make 
him wait until after Halloween. Finally, Dan 
was always professionally minded- He knew 
what we were here for and he knows where

Chuck earned his unenviable nickname one 
day during Plebe Summer when he was 
ordered to shave. Upon return to a heated 
come-around, all were aghast by the spectacle 
of Chuck's gashed face and blood-soaked 
white works- In no way was this an isolated 
incident: During Plebe Year, it was rumored 
that the only reason "our hero" passed 
gymnastics was because the instructor also 
worked for the March of Dimes and could 
sympa thize vtith people like Spaz. in all 
fairness, though. Chuck has managed to 
validate the swim tests every year while 
satisfactorily completing the other physical 

As much as he's playfully teased, we that 
are close to Chuck can appreciate what he has 
done for us as individuals and for the class as 
a whole. He will do his best for anyone, 
whether it means getting good car loans as 
Treas urer for '84, or turn mg out q uality 
material as editor of the yearbook. 

On a personal level. Chuck always has time 
to help people. It is no coincidence that 19th 
company consistently does well on the PCR. 
Chuck's tutoring and knack to get "the gouge" 
has played a large role in that area. 

I can safely say that a lot of people are 
enriched for having known Chuck- If be does 
half as well at Georgetown as he's done at the 
Naval Academy, he won't have a thing to 
worry about — just as long as there are no 
agility tests at Nuke School. 

Curtis Craig Dukes 

Night Train 

Tampa, Florida 

PoliticaJ Science, Navy Pilot 

Curt came to the Naval Academy from 
Tampa, Florida with a golden t^n and a free 
spirit. Plebe year Curt ran track and showed 
great promise until he gave up running to 
pursue his real am bition: courting young ladies 
— and voung they were! Even though Curt sat 
on team tables as a plebe. he still maintained 
a high level of spirit as exidenced by his 
actions one night when he poured his entire 
table s meal on himself in a rage of 
uncontrolled spirit. 

Youngster year was a banner year for Curt. 
His heart went out to the beautiful young lass 
Anisaa. One ECA that Curt founded. Radio 
Free Fifth Wing, firmly established Curt as a 
leader of men. Never the one to let his 
classmates down, Curt softened the difficulties 
of the day with his famous bedtime stories. 

Second class year brought a new change for 
Curt as he joined the boys in Cloud 19. Curt's 
accomplishments are many, but perhaps his 
greatest achievement is graduating with no 
grade lower than a B — and doing it while 
being in bed by 1100. This early rack policy 
coincided well with his roommate Chuck, and 
together they set the noble goal of being in 
bed before plebe taps. 

First class year Curt con tin ued seeing 
Anisaa as well as polishing his leadership skills 
as company Moke and Squad Daddy. Not one 
to let discrepancy slide (Hey Middle. It's a 
question of accountability) Curt assumed the 
awesome duties of dental officer which 
included nightly checks to insure that the 
plebes had flossed properly. 

Curt will be missed by all who know him 
here at USNA for his warm personality and 
easy going style. As a close and trusted friend, 
he will always share a warm part in the 
memories of our days here. Best of luck to you

didn't realize that obstacles were made to be 
cleared and not smeared. About halfway 
through plebe year. Bill decided he'd been a 
plebe long enough. Between listening to his 
radio and missing every other plebe quarters, 
we all weren't sure if he had been promoted. 
Youngster year we saw a new side of Bill . 
the man with barren chest and black bandana 
who terrorized the 4-4 shaft along v,ith his 
trusty companions — the Seal Team of 4-4. 
His manly image alone did not enable him to 
rise to the occasion at Army — don't worry 
Bill, it was probably only nerves. His failure 
at Army drove him to masochism. His hours 
of torture underneath his mattress could never 
prepare him for his Airborne days and Hooyah 
nights at Ft. Banning. Bill will never know 
how sweet that ice cream be paid so dearly for 
would be. Remember Bill, if you come to 
watch TV, watch, but don't get caught

It turns out that Modesto, California is just

on becoming an NFO, but after surfacing in 
Guam after his youngster cruise, it became 
nothing but Subs for him. (appears to be that 
he wouldn't want to be a backseat -rider sifter 

Lantz also had an insane desire to become 
a "Double E"- Fortunately he was able to turn 
his psychosis into a successful major He 
always said. "It 's not my major, it 's my 
hobby, " as he set about building this circuit 
or that. (Rumor has it that be has a Robot 
in the works!) 

Enough about academics. He also found 
some unique ways to blow off steam during our 
four years here at the boat driver's school. The 
bad news is that blowing off steam helped him 
accumulate three 5000 series frys. The good 
new-s is that none of them stuck. It was in such 
situations where he used to say. "You can't 
take life too seriously, you're not getting out 
of it alive anyway!" But don't let that fool you. 
he took this place seriously enough to become 
second set's 2nd regimental subcommander.

that he might hang around Georgia Tech.

have anymore free time. The only problem is. 
since ail his money goes into his car. he can't 
spend any on the ladies. Ob well! You win 
some, vou lose some. Of course, the speeding 
tickets didn't help either A couple of special 
ladies gave him problems along the way. They 
didn't last long. Plebe year and 3000 miles 
took care of that, until he went home for 
Christmas leave One of his favorite hobbies 
was buying clothes. Flip had the most "out of 
sight" wardrobe at the Academy Everyone in 
the company waits to see what he's wearing 
on a casual outing. His favorite outfit 
consisted of five shades of purple. (Rumor has 
it that be has been contracted out to fit the 
Brigade in new uniform styles! Christmas

friendships. Even when he was pushing

Four years ago. Ski left Bedrock and the 
banks of Lake Erie for the banks of the 
Severn. Armed nith a baseball glove and a box 
of animal crackers. Ski quickly adapted to the 
plebe summer regimen, from post taps parties 
with Fourth Class Greenley to the drawer that 
never seemed clean. It was during ac-year that 
Ski learned the real gouge about college life 
from Dan-o and the latest Brigade gossip from 
Chuck. Academically, Ski inspired us all ivith 
yearning for higher knowledge and the rate to 
rack. Sent off to Youngster Cruise in royal 
style. Ski arrived in Hawaii and fell in love 
nith the gray ships (You couldn't fool us with 
that Marine talk!). Youngster year Ski made 
I50s but turned them down realizing that be 
could hve on oranges for only so long This 
year also was the first time we met Sammy 
nith Cork and the arrival of hy's daily steamy 
letters Second Class Summer came and went 
and Ski found himself m Locklear's roommate

Parsons It was this year that Ski redefined 
"road trip" on the way to Jersey with the Boys

slow!). First Class Cruise found us on the Ark. 
doing the ditch and terrorizing the teenagers 
on St. Thomas. The fall brought a platoon, a 
well-coached Brigade Champ football team 
and the hair that grew and grew. Ski. you've 
shown us all what it means to be a sports fan 
and a connoisseur of fine rack. You've been 
more than a roommate these last four years, 
you've been a good friend. Take care, good

Weenie, lean. mean. Gellene came to this

love of New Jersey"'^'' (sorry I couldn't resist) 
that no one can forget Greenly quickly made 
bia presence felt plebe summer by getting the 
privilege of wearing the bilge bucket even 
though it was my fault'' And of course there 
were always those after taps parties to keep 
Dave occupied. Plebe year brought many new 
dimensions to Weenie's character 1 wonder if 
he will ever be the same after making the 
acquaintances of Cork and the boys of '33. 
Speaking of character Weenie showed real 
character by going swimming in Santee Basin 
when he was supposed to be sailing il still 
think he did it to impress the crowd. I .As 
youngster year rolled around Weenie finally 
began his long awaited social life. It seems that 
Dave had a thing for the een's. Maureen and 
Doreen. Maybe Weenie should have changed 
his name to Saint Gellene. Second class year 
marked Dave's majestic return to N. J. for the 
famed N D. game. I am sure it is a road trip 
he will never forget. Weenie's trip to Florida 
for spring break 2/c year also marked a high 
point in bis life. (Do } 
1/c cruiae found Ween 
rough time. I mean St Thomas is really a bad 
liberty port. But, at least it left him time to 
practice Spanish! 1/c year saw Weenie 
"rocket" towards nuclear power See Dave ell 
of those late nights studying really do pay off 
As one of the "6" Weenie could always be 
counted on for a good laugh (come on a 
shark?) and an unwianable argument. Thanks 
for being a super pal and a true to life friend.

Andrew, also known as Digger. Mongoloid, 
and Boo Boo, managed to blow off the first 
10 days of plebe summer by showing up late 
and getting in with a note from Mom. After 
obaerving plebe summer (what's PEP""), first 
semester plebe vear brought on his blossoming 
relationship with TNT Throwing the 35 lb. 
weight on the varsity track team brought out 
Andy's killer instinct. However, hopes of 
earning an "N" sweater ended when track 
practice gave way to the call of the rack — 
especially long distance calls from New Jersey. 
Actually Andrew s favorite racktime was in the 
classroom, his head perched on a stack of 
books . . . "But I was facing the blackboard. " 
With girls Andy was a two-headed ogre, 
though influence wasn't dependent on size. 
Whether they were gnarly, or from N. J.. Andy 
could charm them with conversation about 
plumbing repairs, and NFCU deposits. If 
Andy ever decides to leave the NavT, be can 
always get a job with Shell or Exxon since he 
already has had experience at offshore drilling, 
even though it was only a hobbie with Andy. 
Andrew's appropriately named car 'Spitfire', 
coat htm $3000 . . . +$2400 . . . +$1500 . . . 
+ $?. When Andy wasn't repairing beaters, he 
was preparing his car for road trips . . . where 's 
the marshmallows f* Andrew was such a 
dedicated student that he even cut short his 
enroling during Christmas to write a computer 
program . . what an inspiration to ua all. 
Andrew's dynamic personality enabled him to 
acquire a multitude of acquaintances over 
Protramid t remember Quanticoi. However, 
most of these relationships were eventually 
kwelled. During these past 4 years. Andy never 
failed to keep us amused with his thousands 
sounds, his confused martian. his unique luck, 
and all of those pantomime battles that were 
waged nightly. Regardless of Andy's incurable 
ZOA. he will always be our cardboard hero. 


David C. Hall 


Beltsville, Maryland 

English, Navy Pilot 

It is a very lucky thing that Dave comes 
from Beltsville right here in Maryland. If Dave 
were not fortunate enough to have lived close 
to the Academy, he would have left all the 
beautiful female population from 15 to 30 
broken-hearted. But Dave is known for more 
than his magic with the women. Where do I 
begin to tell the story? If I had to compare 
him to a writer, it would be Shakespeare; if 
comparing him to a thinker, it would be 
Einstein: if comparing him to a lover, it would 
be MAURO! Although Dave has many things 
in common with these giants, there are things 
about him that dwarf the greatest of men. 
Even though Dave would wait until the night 
before - or maybe even the period before - a 
big test to get ready (in order to maintain his 
3.5. 90th in the class standing, the Burke 
scholarship winner form}, he would spend 
moat of his time helping everyone in the 
company solve a tough one. Dave would bend 
over backwards for a friend, and everyone was 
Dave's friend. There is nothing in life Dave 
Hall can 't do. He came here a skinny kid and 
leaves with a Greek god-like physique. I will 
never forget the evenings at Wendy's, late 
night talks about Sandy and Kim Hi. 2. and 
3. Sir Lawrence of Olivier. Mel knocking on 
the wall. Scott and Kim. I can never forget all 
the great times we spent inith your mom. We 
will never forget Mrs. Hall and the beautiful 
loving person she was. After knowing a person 
like her it is easy to believe there is a beautiful 
person like Dave Hall. Let's go get 'em in 
P-Cola. How 'bout that Dave Hall. Jimmy

I'd like everyone to meet my r 
Mel Mel came to us that first s 
atudly figure of a man (Remember those good 
old days. Chief?). I knew we were meant for 
each other from the first time we liaited the 
local pubs. How vividly I remember those last 
second dashes through the "Yard." And who 
can forget that first Army when Mel decided 
the hotel needed a sit -on -the -floor doorman. 
Mel's liking of the sweet nectar really became 
apparent, though, I/c year when he organized 
some of the beat tailgaters ever seen by man. 
Of course, Mel had many other interests over 
the years. One of them, for example, was 
WOMEN! Mel loved to like women, especially 
the more "mature" of the apeciea. You know 
the expression "talk is cheap", well . . . 
anyway, if you ever see him, ask him about 
"Bootsy!" As for Mel'a lifeatyle in Mother "B". 
he was the epitome of cool. From aleeping au 
naturale to coaching the Batt. Football team 
to a championahip, Mel was everyones 
multi 'talented leader (If only he would get his 
hair cut!). Even when it came to academics, 
Mel never panicked. I think this was due to 
his unique study habit of going to bed early 
and setting hia alarm for 3:00 am, 5:00 am, 6:00 
am, and fmally 7:20 am so he could study 
while he was reated (That'a alright buddy, I 
didn 't need the sleep anyway!). Seriously 
though. Craig ia a very special person. He was 
always there when you needed him, and one 
helluva "best friend". I love him dearly, and 
we're all going to miss him a great deal when 
this nightmare is over Good luck, pal, and 
God Blesa You!!!

appropriate name. He stayed in ahape by 
training on pizza, beer, sunshine, and thoee 
last minute sprints for taps. His training 
peaked with the 30 second change at the gas

blaring on bis waikman. He found Plebe 
Summer a breeze (being a NAPSterl and 
unselfishly helped the rest of "Donovan s

know he eagerly learned from Lori Rampp. 
and what he couldn't learn from her, he 
learned from her younger sister. Jake found 
bis calling second claas summer, where he 
enjoyed beer for breakfast, and women for 
lunch and dinner. One important fact was 
established then also, he was never getting 
married . . . ever The dawning of second class 
year brought Matt 's three date Jake era where 
he refused to go out with any girl more than 
three times. He wanted no commitments, for 
be was not gettmg married . at least not for 
a few years. First claas year brought Matt's 
desire for a commission in the Air Force, and 
after meeting her. a desire for Tracy. He got 
both, as well as something else - engaged! 

Matt's quick wit. rather loud disposition, 
and straight- forward emotions will be remem-

Big T' 

Utica, New York 

Political Science, Navy Pilot 

Never let it be said that the Big T took a 
low profile in his years at the Academy From 
the beginning Tony stood out as something 
special. Leaving behind the security of his 
large family in Utica. N. V he immediately 
made a big splash. (His performances at plebe 
summer come arounds are now legendary - 
lucky are the few that got to witness them!) 
We learned to expect big things when Tony 
waa around, and we weren't disappointed In 
a first year full of football, magic marker 
fights, words of the day • oh, and an occasional 
plebe rate - Tony finally overcame plebe year. 
As an upperclass. nothing could atop him. Not 
football, not academics (well . . .) and certainly 
not girls. His unexplainable power over women 
waa envied by ail (and surpassed only by his 
roommate's). But at the center of his world 
was Sandy, the hometown sweetie with a 
stronghold on his heart. It just goes to show 
even the toughest guy has bis weakness. 
Through all the hard times, though. Tony has 
managed to come out on top. I don 't know of 
anyone with so much zest for life. Affectionate 
end caring, be knows the meaning of the word 
"friend". The memories of these 4 years • 
immature faces, ski adventures, a double date 
in the cadillac (bow 'bout those reclining 
seats!), too many late night talks, trips to 
Wendy's, some fantastic times in Utica and 
Beltaviile, a "mishap of an evening", girl 
problems, worthless alarm clocks, a couple of 
intense fights, and 3 years in the craziest room 
at the Academy ■ don't even begin to tell the 
story. Suffice it to say that our friendship is 
the greatest thing I take away from here. Good 
luck always. Ton. Holy geez, P-Cola is 
definitely not ready for us!

Stuart Russell Mc Arthur 


East Norwalk, Connecticut 

Political Science, Navy Pilot 

With a name like McArthur, Stuart Russell 
waa destined to be a military man. So Suey 
found himself one weekend after graduating 
from high school on the desolate shores of 
Newport, RI where he awaited the rank of 
Seaman Recruit prior to reporting to NAPS. 
The civilian/military transition was quite easy 
for Suey. as was the academic load. Here he 
met his life long Mends Drewy and Moohy. 

Entering USNA, Stu showed bis military 
might as he and bis classmates from NAPS 
made plebe summer look as if it were a piece 
of cake. He soon realized that academics 
weren 't important and be then started to excel 
in bis military activities by attending 
Treebome and Baby Seal School This was not 
all Stu did on bis free time. 

During Plebe and Youngster year Suey 
invited many of his close acquaintances from 
New York and Boston down for the WE. In 
bis second class year I became Suey's personal 
answering service by answering the phone on 
a frequent basia. After setting up bis weekend 
rendezvous, Drewy, Suey. and Moohy would 
knock the wontona dead with their dancing 
tactics. Tbey were always burning up the floor. 
Slingshot entered the video about this time. 
And the boys trekked on down to Lauderdale 
for spring break. Suey received bis first lesson 
in first aid and the art of fine fashions (i.e. 
Bocca Ration). He also learned something 
about Lebanese while in Florida. 

In bis senior year Stu fmally started to show 
bis military expertise by becoming a platoon 
commander. He also dreamed up such lingo as 
Yarr Darr, Waldo, Catch, Latch and act. In all 
honesty Stu baa been a great roommate and 
one of my best friends. I wish bim the best 
of luck in the future and get that pin. Catch.

Gregory S. Navin 


Westport, Connecticut 

General Engineering, Surface 


Greg came to us from a small New England 
town called Westport. Greg's first mistake, as 
far as the class of '84 is concerned, was that 
while we grunted and sweated through the 
hottest Annapolis summer in SO years, he 
relaxed under the cool Connecticut sun with 
his windsurfer and bis girl Yes, you'll have to 
admit it now, Greg, you never had a Plebe 
Summer. Plebe year, for the second time, was 
a challenge rooming with Tony and Dave and 
trying to study at the same time, yet you still 
managed to get a 3.11. Youngster cruise to 
Italy on a submarine sure was fun. but at least 
you saw the light and decided surface line is 
mighty fine after all. Then came youngster 
year and all those major's courses came to life. 
They can't compare to second class year's 
load, though. The only light we could see at 
the end of the tunnel was a subway's headlight 
bearing down on us. How about all those 
all-nighters we went through ? I'm still amazed 
at the amount of coffee the human bladder can 
hold. We did have some good times that year 
though. Going out to Mrs. Lively's after the 
company dining ■ it had to be one of the 
funniest. Are you still red? Somehow it all 
ended and we got our rings and cars. But that 
waan 't good enough for you. Greg, you bad to 
go and get a wife, to boot. Well, we'll let you 
sUde this time — but that's only because 
Wendy's such a great girt Well roomie, 
thanks, thanks for being there and helping me 
see over all the crud they threw at us. I guess 
that waa one of your best talents. You cxyuld 
always get to the bottom and put things in the 
right perspective. I don 't need to wish you any 
luck — you don 't need it I will wish you all 
the happiness in the world for both you and

Smiley came to us from Pee- Yeblo. CO. with 
a amiJe on his face and Navy Air in his heart. 
Hia high spirits and happy disposition earned 
him the name Smiley. His plebe summer 
found him laughing many a night away to 
Richard Pryor. (LFP) Visiting the 'ship in the 
yard' was among bis plebe duties. His 
exceptional skill with model Airplane design 
demonatrated his early interest in aviation, 
because Smiley knew that only airplanes were 
better than women. His expert ability in 
swimming led to 4 years of validation and one 
night of backstroking home from Jaspers. 
Smiley and the other Musketeers spent their 
first Easter at the Lawns basking in the sun 
by day and raising hell by night Don't craw! 
too far into the woods, Smiley! Mike was soon 
turned on to some real music and found a 
bidden talent somewhere between his drum- 
sticks and bis abused desk lamp . . . but only 
he knows where. While studying under bis 
mentor, the Big Kid, Smiley learned that 
dipping in parades was not so mun after all. 
Wba t company Mesa Nigh t?? Mike was 
always a ladies man. Remember the missing 
girl in Florida, the girl in the Corvette, the 
Beak, the Gorilla, Little Orphan Annie and the 
one in the cradle. But then there were the 
midnight runs and marathon phone calls to 
the real woman in College Park. Mike owes the 
Ac Dean a favor for finding his car for him 
at the Mail. When be wasn't in the rack or 
on the phone, Mike was the most caring of

to brighten even the darkest of days. Good

Tony 0. Started USNA as if he were right 
at home . . . with his family living in the yard, 
that wasn't very far from the truth. Actually, 
no one else had to deal with his "Capt. Daddy" 
bracing him up, so I paid his dues. The 
summer melted into Ac- Year and in true Mid 
fashion Tony melted into bis bed. That's right 
his bed. at bis home: not a bad way to spend 
a youngster. After this grueling introduction 
he was generously rewarded with a fine 
youngster cruise on an AD out of Alameda. 
Tony quickly learned that be really wanted 
Navy Air. Youngster year brought fame and 
fortune as Tony won an N-star, the first for 
84 in 19. As an upper class Tony blossomed 
into quite a ladies-man. Weekend frolics with 
Jammin' Jenny. Kendel, and Rosie were 
commonplace. Tony's cruise on the Battleship 
served to solidify his desire to be an ace, so 
he'll be off to P-cola. The Navy won't find a

Physical Science, Civilian 

From day one, nobody has ever been able 
to guess what this native of Inkster. Michigan 
was going to do next. When he arrived after 
a vear on the beautiful shores of Narragansett 
Bay, Len was convinced that be was going to 
graduate with a degree in Aerospace Engineer- 
ing and become a Submariner. 

And if it hadn 't been for academics he might 
have made it through Aero. But the effort to 
stay one jump ahead of the Axe Board forced 
Lenny to switch his major to Physical Science 
during Youngster year. Also, after a visit to 
NAS Pensacola during Protramid. be was 
convinced that he wanted nothing more than 
to be a Naval Flight Officer So. with the start 
of second class year, a new Lenn returned to 
the halls of 19tb Company. And in apprecia- 
tion for his positive leadership and profession- 
alism, the Class of '86 threw a party for him 
out in Goat Court on his birthday. It wasn't 
easy dodging those waterballoons while 
tied-up in a chair and wearing nothing but 
shaving cream and a smile — but Lenny 
pulled through in bis usual dramatic fashion- 
First Class cruise in San Diego left Len sold 
on Surface Warfare and Southern California. 
There was even a little time to be semi-sadistic 
up in Newport training NAPSters as he 
uttered those now famous words. "I'm your 
worst nightmare — a jerk with authority." In 
the fall, Lenny found out that he was not 
physically qualified to be commissioned, so he 
spent most of second semester preparing for 
bis new career as a professional musician!

St Petersberg, Florida 

Aerospace Engineering, AMDO 

Shoe came to us from the beaches of Florida 
with bis shorts, flip-flops, and a full volume 
of Jimmy Buffet albums under bis arms. His 
plebe year was spent at Kathy's house where 
he became very close friends with Jose and 
Pepe. Shoe soon learned to live by the saying 
"Why put off till tomorrow what you can do 
the day after tomorrow. " Yes. Shoe is the 
world's greatest procAstinator. He used to put 
off work until be could string 3 all-nighters in 

Bob was also strong in the area of women 
Third class year went to New Jersey and found 
his "angel". When that didn't gel Bob worked 
on some smooth lines. Rumor has it that Shoe 
once asked a girl "not to spoil this beautiful 
moment" You remember her Bob (I've got 
nice teeth, I like to clean and I love to .J 

Shoe was also an excellent athlete. Plebe 
year he realized that baseball just wasn't for 
him and gave his talents to the intramural 
circuit Shoe stayed with the same sports all 
four years: basketball, football and soft ball. As 
captain of the co basketball team Shoe wasn f 
looking for the brigade championship, but 
rather for that one elusive victory each season 
And in football Shoe will forever hold the 
record for the most completions in a gams, 
unfortunately the passes were caught by the 
other team. 

But, on the serious side. Shoe is one who 
is a friend to all. Bob may have graduated in 
1984 but he will always be remembered as a 
member of the class of 1983. Unfortunately. 
Bob was delayed in graduating because of a 
serious accident, but through sheer determina- 
tion he is back with the same happy-go-lucky 
attitude. Bob is the best friend a person could 
have. Shoe. Friends like you make the whole 
experience worth it Good Luck.

Sealy, Texas 

General Engineering, U.S.M.C. 

When Mark came to ua from the land of 
steers and queers he was 5 6'. 125 lbs. and we 
thought he was a strange little polack. Now 
he's 140 lbs. and we're sure he's very strange 
I mean a varsity D & B 2 striper with a toy 
rifle, rubber alligator, ceramic snake, and 
power windows on your truck; come on Mark. 
How about csmies for Army Week roving 
patrol, assorted items rescued from the trash, 
and switching from Aero to General so your 
grades can drop? After all that's what GE is 
all about isn't it" One thing I never 
understood though is why you bought a 
nenspaper. Your life subscription to the Sealy 
News brought you stories like "Jones cat 
caught in tree" and "Smith dog dies": and 
what else important ever happens in the 
world? I guess that 'a why you always bad such 
a stack of old newspapers lying around. The 
real clincher was service selection — Marine 
Corps? What will people say? "Look, out on 
the track, it 's a snail, it 's a tortoise, it 's Mark 
rurming the mile again!" Maybe it'll be: 
"Faster than a speeding caterpillar, able to sit 
up on his own, it's the Grunt Runt!" Really 
Mark bow could any enlisted man take you 
seriously when you need platform shoes to be 
able to stare him in the navel'^ The Corps does 
have its advantages though, when you come 
back here no one will mistake you for a 
mailman — maybe an elf at Christmas, but 
never a mailman. Anyway when are you going 
to get a haircut? 

It's been a fun four years, never a dull week, 
whether it's been burned pens and pencils, 
strange brews in my mug. or assorted liquids 
poured in my bed or on me, you've kept me 
from being bored. Thanks for the fun and as 
for your service selection — better you than 
me! I hear the Marines are still looking for 
thoae few good men. 

Good luck and Kill the Commies!!

The Navy dragged Dave away from God's 
country kicking and screaming. The fight was 
worth it. though, for Dave quickly displayed 
his athletic abilities by challenging the 
W-course record and being high scorer in the 
plebe B-ball smoker. But basketball was not 
to be for Dave, with the exception of frequent 
and Mciously competitive nerf tourneys in the 
room. Instead. Vandy resigned himself to an 
all-star company sports status and the study 
of starfish and sand. Despite the latter 
discipline, the zoomies agreed to keep him for 
a semester in Colorado Springs. Now Air Force 
A s are relatively easy to come-by. you see. bo 
(he Schooter spent the majority of his time a 
safe distance from his books. There. Dave 
enjoyed jumping out of airplanes with nothing 
attached, diving with the scuba club, skiing, 
fishing, and terrorizing the bus drivers during 
Na\y week. Plebe summer and first class year 
brought a plethora of stripes, a new truck, and 
a continuation of a nasty string of 4.0's. Truly, 
Dave's faults are few and far between, yet we'd 
be remiss not to mention a few. Most notable 
of course, are his dubious musical tastes 
("ladies and gentlemen. Miss Amy Grant") 
and temperance in manner and drink. Dave's 
amiable disposition, moral dedication, and 
cool hand will make him the best "high-tech 
Capt. Kirk" to ever blaze a path across the 
sky. More importantly though, it's made him 
the finest friend for whom any could ask. 
Godspeed Dave.

Schlong came to us from central N. Y. a 
lean, mean, stroking machine, having just 
captained one o( the best swim teams in the 
country. He proceeded to validate every swim 
test they could throw at him for four years. 
After a go at the J. V. team and a bout with 
the waterpoio fellows, however, Scott decided 
that swimming was for fiah. Yet bia affinity 
for water did not end there, as Schlong became 
quite the ocean engineering stud. For Scott, 
an "A" was 95 and above, although even the 
profs allowed more room for error. Despite his 
academic prowess, the scouting report on bis 
nerf basketball game illuminated an acute lack 
of dexterity in bis left band - one might even 
say an affliction • earning him the nickname 
"The Claw." Second class year brought a 
company commander position and a spring 
break road trip to the surf, sand, and suds of 
sunny Ft Lauderdale. Soon afterwards, Scott 
sacrificed good gas mileage in return for the 
high performance of a 1980 diesel rabbit, in 
which he perfected his "lO-and-2" death grip. 
After an exotic Forex cruise in Brazil, his 
attentions turned to more important matters; 
Joan and nuclear powered submarines. Both 
parties could hardly be more fortunate, and 
both will undoubtedly discover that Scott's 
imagination and commitment are rare quali- 
ties. We have. 

Matthew T. Wallace 


Reston, Virginia 

Systems Engineering, Nuclear 


Matt'a pilgrimage toward higher education 
and a Naval career began in Reston, VA and 
ended an hour later at ''THE ACADEATY". 
He quickly proved himself a man of many 
talents and a quick wit Among his talents was 
an affinity for poetry, which delighted bis 
plebe classmates, but did Utile for the first 
claas critics who were die-hard Pittsburgh 
fans. Despite being so short. Matt could cover 
a mile in 4:35. and could walk from his room 
to the bathroom on his bands. Youngster year 
found Matt experimenting with Aerospace 
engineering. After testing over 30 paper 
prototypes in T-court, his career was cut short 
by the OOD, and he settled for Systems 
Engineering instead. To prove his dedication 
to multiapeed blenders and dishwashers. Matt 
decided to forfeit all sleep for an entire year. 
All kidding aside Matt is a brilliant engineer 
with a promising future. After all, the world 
needs better blenders. There were 2.5 days a 
week when Matt was at bis best, and rarely 
could be found within the confines of Mother 
B. His adventurous spirit led him to Hawaii, 
Norway, and Europe. His taste in cars (even 
Chateau Silver) is superb, although his flavor 
for music is questionable (Who's King?). 
Throughout the past four years, Matt has been 
a valuable friend and a great roommate, be 
knows bow to enjoy himself and helps others 
to do the same. He will be greatly missed but 
be will be a super addition to the fleet We'll 
be seeing you down in Florida. 


Gary Harmon Williams 


Las Cruces, New Mexico

Gary, also known as Mr. Meticulous, Gerber, 
King of One-liners. Toper, Burper and Stu, 
came from the badlands of New Mexico where 
gunalinging, drinking, and listening to country 
music are a way of life. During Plebe Summer. 
Gary was known for bis obsession with Irish 
Pennants and his flawless knowledge of rates. 
In addition to being a perfect plebe — Gary 
exchanged alt of bis P.E. shirts — he was a 
perfect drinking companion . . . after any 
drinking occasion be remembered perfectly 
nothing. Not even a sellout crowd at Giants 
Stadium could rouse Gary from a drunken 
stupor. Several times we have bad to explain, 
"He's not heavy, he's my roommate." 
Dragging Gary's body at the expense of belt 
buckle, shoes and trousers or bouncing bis 
unconscious bead off of door frames, dash- 
boards, etc. provided entertainment during 
Gary's moments of indulgence. Gary overin- 
dulged at times . . . nose shots of Guinness 
Stout, Harvey's more-than-Gary-could-keep- 
dowD special, and Chicken Mc Vomiting. 
During conscious moments, Gary entertained 
with endless one-liners. He was the power 
behind Mike Force with the ability to clear the 
wardroom with a single one-liner. And when 
Gary couldn't come up with crude comments, 
a thundering belch would do. Then there's bis 
outrageous accent . . . the woe-man in 
Dee-troit who he couldn't take to the tbee-ater 
because he didn't have his billfold. Gary 
outgrew bis gross taste in girls and found 
satisfying companions for his roommates. 
We'll never forget the duty car — the Olds 98 
that could (well it almost got us to 
Lauderdale). Or that "off-duty cop" wardrobe 
of Gary's. Rooming with a future 5-striper for 
two years taught Gary to overlook friendship 
when it came to the Admin Conduct System 
. . . et tu Gary. But we still love ya. Best of 
luck to everyone's best friend.

Matthew Raymond Avila 


Turlock, California 

Aerospace Engineering, NFO 

Being an aero major and the skipper of the 
fastest boat and crew at NASS is no picnic, 
but Matt managed to make it one. He quickly 
learned bow to skate out of plebe year, 
watches, duty, and weekends. Matt strives for 
perfection in everything he does - studies, 
sailing, striper billets, sleeping. As an aero 
major he does quite well; he averages 12 hours 
of sleep every day. Matt's sleeping habits 
resulted in fame. Last month, the American 
Medical Association did an article on him and 
his terminal Burnius rakcius (rack burns). 
He's buying his o»7i bedspread when he 
graduates so he'll always have a home away 
from home. The only time Matt isn't sleeping 
is when he's nitb the Peruvian. That's the only 
time he has better things to do than sleep, but 
sleeping runs a close second- I'm sure one day 
he'll trade in the blue bedspread for his very 
own Muggy blanket. Everybody puts up with 
a lot from their roommates and Matt is no 
exception. His chances for being a pilot were 
ruined when his roommate hit him in the right 
eye with an icebali, causing him to lose vision 
in bis left eye. Matt loves to drag his ballrat 
roomie out into the real world once in a while 
- Dahigren. the Dockside, Catons\iUe. the 
Azores. I've enjoyed all of it. Thanks for 
everything. Keep the cowboys and indians 
coming and don't let flight school interfere 
with your sleep. It's been real and it's been 
fun, but it hasn't been real fun.

Here are just a few of the things that have 
had a lasting effect on my life while at the 
Naval Academy. 

Mom and Dad - Model parents, I only hope 
I can do for my kids what you've done for me. 

Megan-Smeggiea/War-WarH A team forever. 
You love me bo much you almost lost me, now 
you're stuck for eternity. 

FCA - /( turned my 2.6 on paper to a 4.0 
in my mind, some things are more important 
than grades. Thank you Ace for taking me 
from one side of the alter to the other. 

Hometown ■ I am privileged to be from a 
city with two cultures. P. C. has the world's 
most beautiful beaches — it also has some of 
the worst (or beat) Southern drawls of any 
hick town in nearby Alabama. 6 months TAD 
on the Gulf, I'm glad I'm finally working for 
a livin'. 

John V. ■ My Best Man. 'nougb said. 

Bags - Thanks for putting this place in 
perspective so many times. May your Mach Sf 
be greater than your QPR. 

J. B.. Tom, Tommy, Rips, and San ■ Thanks 
for the semester in the 2-3 shuffle. 

Dobbers - you get my vote whatever you run 

Systems Eng. - 4 yrs. and I still don 't know 
what it is. 

God deserves all the credit for any good I've 
done in the world and he only knows what is 
to come in my life, but I feel safe.

David A. Booth 


North Tarrytown, New York 

Mathematics, Marine Corps 

When Dave decided to attend Canoe V. over 
nearby West Point, he doubtless had very 
little idea of the impression he 'd leave with the 
Brigade. His impact has most certainly been 
felt by all those who dared to step between 
him and the goal line in Company football. 
Not that he's an animal or anything — 
animals don't laugh while ripping someone's 
shoulder out: Dave does. Fortunately for 20, 
he left a much more lasting impression in 
other, more important ways. His friendly 
demeanor touched us all each day: the Booty 
never let his horrendous math courses 
interfere with his personal dealings. Dave is a 
model leader: not the type we read about in 
NL, but one with an amazing ability to deal 
with all people — a thinking individual, who 
can cope with any situation handed him. As 
a result of this, he has earned the respect and 
admiration of everyone who has had the 
pleasure of dealing with him. The plebes 
idolize him — at least those he didn't maul 
over Plebe Detail. Dave will always remember 
his one weekend away from Annapolis (in all 
4 years), explaining to his parents that 
Dobbers really is a living entity, his maid, and 
the love he has for the Naval Academy. His 
only mistake was going Corps: He can't go 
Blue/Gold with Mike (Sorry, Susan), and I 
won't be able to serve with him. I will sorely 
miss the finest person I probably will ever 
know. The Marines will never appreciate just 
how lucky they are.

-Hold on to my money, mister" 

rn from 
n hand: 
■ Plebe 

Summer went fairly smoothly for Rich, with 
only an occasional breakout of baseball with 
Tony. Plebe year found Rich toiling in the 
Boge-Man's class, trying to comprehend the 
modernity of the Bauhaua. This intrigued him 
so much he became a History major 
Youngster year found Rich on 2-3 with some 
really cool roommates. That year Rich became 
the Monk of VSNA. -This damn East Coasf. 
••Why do you guys call me B. H."^" Nobody 
will ever forget the wet T-Sbirt contest. As a 
second class Rich went to West Point; what 
really happened is only conjecture He 
returned only to go 4-2 with He-be-ge-be. 
Plebe Detail brought the best in Rich: "Hey. 
Beanhead!" Firstie year saw Rich become 
company sub-commander and a force to be 
reckoned with f'^l. Rich evolved into the 
strange star of the punk world. Rich Vicious, 
to the surprise of bis friends- There are so 
many memories of Rich that we remember: the 
sight of Rich forever munching on sunflower 
seeds or sitting in his bed with his books open 
and his eyes closed, or his favorite position ■ 
slumped in his chair with no visible signs of

The Felix Unger of the Naval Academy. 4.0 
Cuff was "a good plebe". As the twentieth 
company meteorologist, Tom holds the 
distinction of being the only Mid in history 
to drive more than 100 miles to watch the 
snow fall. Excellence and consideration come 
to mind when describing Tom. He came to the 
Naval Academy with an idealism that would 
not quit. If a good cause existed. Tom could 
always be found as its advocate. Never one to 
become irate at a well placed barb, his good 
humor was an example to all. lAs a Tampa 
Bay fan this was an absolute necessity.) Tom 
has a chemistry of friendship, pride and 
integrity mixed in a perfect solution of 
judgement and toleration which sets him 
above his peers. An intense individual, when 
Tom started a job it got finished. When it was 
done, it was done well. To most Mids he v-ill 
be remembered as a dedicated and considerate 
leader. To a lucky select few, he will always 
be a very special friend.

Tommie came to "Das Boot" school from 
"the Swamplands of Jersey. " The first thing 
on his mind was to continue a sparkling 
wrestling career He did find himself on the 
mat, but after a short time, be also found bis 
knee under the knife. It was at this point in 
time that TD crossed over to the 150 lb. 
football pipeline. Go Na^y Club Army! 

After a relaxing cruise to Gitmo during the 
summer TD returned to tlie Academy to 
become the field general for 150's. But 
wrestling was not out of his blood yet, be and 
Bruno successfully captured the tag team 
championship that year. How about those 
Churchill lectures on Friday nights Tom! 
Academics, youngster year? Well let's not talk 
about that- 
Second class year brought an enemy to 
Bruno and Gito and their way of life. A quick 
room change and a hard-core treatment with 
discipline problems soon found the tag-team 
champions towing the line! Yeah right! Second 
class year had its ups and downs for Tommie, 
another good ISO's season insatiable weekends 
and fieldball. Academics finally caught the 
quarterback behind the line and sacked him 
on the 1.47 yard line. At half time he was 
reprimanded by the owner of the mids and 
bad to withdraw from the "Mr.

Charles Andrews Frederick 


Greeley, Colorado 

English, Surface Line 

Chuck baa bad a very unusual past. He must 
be one of the few mids (if not the only) to 
graduate from the academy without having 
graduated from high achooi But before be 
came here be used the Marine Corps as a 
stepping stone. He really wasn't a Marine, be 
just wore the uniform for a while. After a short 
visit at NAPS, be left bis mark on plebe 
summer. He was a big help to his squadmates 
who didn't know what the bell was going on. 

One thing about Chuck is that be always 
tried to slide by with the minimum amount 
of work. Academics were definitely not a high 
priority, they weren't even a medium priority. 
Asa matter of fact, I don't even think he gave 
them a priority. He also avoided physical 
exertion like Don Juan avoids that thing called 
AIDS. Working out was not one of Chuck's 
me^or endeavors. Coming back from Christ- 
mas plebe year he brought back with him a 
double chin and a double belly. 

One of the habits be had which always gave 
bun problems was bis smoking. But no one can 
say he never tried to atop. He quit the day 
before every mile run and about 2 weeks 
before room selections went 

First class year he developed a chronic 
health disorder which caused him to frequent 
Medical regularly. I think it was called, or 
rather, she was called Robin. 

But now that we are divided by this vast 
continent all I can say is Good Luck Chuck

Every form of refuge baa its price. Four 
years will get you five but I somehow suspect 
it is more than that. Maybe it's simply not 
knowing if your name is Migbt-Have-Been; 
also called No More. Too Late, Farewell or 
simply coward. Maybe it is not knowing 
whether they really intend, and have the 
power, to eat the orange and throw the peel 
away — surelv a man is not a piece of fruit. 
Maybe it is not being able to aid the rebel who 
guards the seemingly impregnable fortress of 
youth as something of undefinable essence and 
inestimable worth dies before your helpless 

Maybe it is hurting the people you love the 
best and creating a debt that can never be 
repaid and will never be forgotten. To learn 
that the world breaks every one and 
afterwards many are strong at the broken 
places. But those that will not break it kills 
— so you break. 

Maybe it is imploring to some unknown 
entity to speak to me, take me up — take me, 
Life of my Youth — you who are care-free, 
beautiful — receive me again. But nothing 
stirs. Listless and wretched 1 sit as the past 
withdraws itself . . . Nevermore. 

But. the past is the present. It's the future, 
too. We all try to lie out of that but life won't 
let us. The real price is realizing you've sold 
the only thing you have of real value — your 
self and allowed them to do things which are 
done before you realize it. And once they're 
done they make you do other things until at 
last everything comes between you and what 
you 'd hke to be, and you 've lost your true self

Ralphie came to the banks of the Severn 
with an open mind. He soon lived up to his 
name when we were let out in the fall to drink, 
just ask the "bead". He had a knack for 
running fast which meant be was never late 
for taps. 

He got a chance to use his Spanish when 
he went to the Med. for youngster cruise. It 
was there that he fell in love with shipboard 
life. He didn 't go Corps because be doesn 't like 
to shave! Except for formals. 

First class summer be was off to Mexico to 
"study" Spanish and the Mexican Maidins. 
That is where he met Beatriz. He was so taken 
by her that be went back during X-mas to see 
her again. At the party after Service Selection 
be was a bit with bis "yard of ale" drinking 
glass he brought back. Again he was true to 
bis name, as always, when he got back to the 
Hall. At least he feels better in the morning. 

Good Luck in the Maban Ralphie Baby!

convinced us that the air ia actually clean up 
there. So this is what NAPS produces. A boy

out of bis shell over the summer of '82. A guy 
who tried so desperately to save Manny but 
lost him. finally, to 36. 

"How's my hair for inspection?" he'd 
inquire "It's to Long Al." "Ah c'mon yours ia

be did. To beck with bis conservative part and 
tweed dinner jackets. Zippers, hairapray, 
zippers, earrings, zippers, shades, zippers, and 
leather. Eyeshadow? The Musketeers would 
never have been the same without you. 

What about those '82 parties. Ashley + 
Shelley, hotel rooms in the Little Creek (not 
to mention those 'gripping' cab rides), car 
hoods at P. J. 's (tears for Sheena), late night 
snacks on Culver's lake. Lady's night (or was 
that Lifeguard night?). Gata and Izzy 
homeless. New England arm wrestling, and of 

Second class year molded the inner man. 
Al's crazy influence spread hke the plague to 
bia close friends. By first class year he'd settle 
into his image of new wave man and set his 
mind on the three most important things - 
music, clothing, and of course Heidi. 

Good Luck at P-Cola . . . The fun has only

he was ripped off in the wet T-shirt contest. 
Jim continued to excel in company sports but 
free agency was in the air. (Fieldball) (WE's

SL brothers in the suite on 4-2. Hanno went 
to England on an exchange, played mess

survive the Royal Navy. Not to be outdone the 
Brits came over here and almost got Jim in 
trouble: "Flag'^ what flag'^" Jim did well over 
plebe summer but the plebes thought he 
needed a shower. Jim was company com-

obvious. He did things he liked to do 
unafraid of the consequences (as can be 
verified by the Manitou Springs and D. C.

to Grit - it gave him a challenge and he 
surpassed that challenge 2/C summer gave 
Greg more than just fun and games in Pcola

such an impression on Greg that he voluntarily 
threw his little black book (which was in

hit It off from the start ■ all you beard was 
"I can't stand it ■ it's going to be one more

Alexander S. Heyward 


Vienna, Virginia 

Applied Science, Navy Air 

Slward 's chief worry when he arrived in 
Annapolis was academics. He thought the 
dictionary was a poem and he read only R&T. 
Indeed the struggle was long and hard at first, 
but the academic excellence rubbed off of such 
roommates as TD and JB and Heyward was 
on bis feet in no time. He left the JV soccer 
team to start an upward trend, but it failed. 
Then something beautiful came into his life: 
SLNESS. Sandy and his new love were reborn 
in '82. To celebrate the event, he took off and 
skied in the Bavarian Alps with JJ and Rips. 
He'll always remember the trip because it was 
then that he learned the value of a dollar. 
Spring break brought more excitement as he 
contracted water-on -the-lung for backseat 
quais. The summer was emotional diversity. 
Hedgewood soared in PenSLcola, met the Big 
O and gagged in speech. 2nd class year looked 
to be an improvement while living under the 
influences ofJH & SR. He began to break onto 
the other side and after a quick trip to Ohio 
bad the best semester out. The ring dance was 
a bit unusual with Lo, especially having to 
caravan down to Norfolk at 6 am. But Bucks. 
Lou, Hannan & Heyward survived with the 
help of Gliebe, Mr. Taylor and the beach. 
Then it was back to USunA for some revenge 
doing detail. Slward finished the summer by 
cruisin to LA to check out the Bronze God 
(Sweathill) and catch some real waves. By 
moving up to slsville with J Bonus, Tommie, 
Tom, & the boys. Sandy could concentrate on 
better things besides school: like coaching 20th 
CO soccer to its best season, adding chapters 
to the SAAB story, talking to the babes. & 
bringing the guys down to sponge off Shan 's 
Pool Hall and MA 'a Diner.

Only two things come from Texas . . . 

Mike bad submarines on the brain from day 
one and not even heat transfer with "the 
Rocket" could change his mind. From his 
silver dolphins to his Marine Engineering 
major (engineers forever!!} he had never 
known what it was like not to glow. "Lopes" 
worked pretty hard, but let it never be said 
that he didn't have fun. too! The dirt-cheap 
price of rum in Puerto Rico wade his 
Caribbean cruise a real dream, though it 
adversely affected his golf match with the 
Shore Patrol. They sent him to Airborne 
School to learn some discipline, but all he 
brought back from Georgia was an affinity for 
Southern Comfort and Holiday Inn hotel 
rooms. Tim told him to "get wet": the only 
way he knew how was to become a scuba diver. 
Mike always pushed himself to the limit in 
sports, even if it meant playing while injured. 
After all. a broken ankle only takes a day or 
two to heal, right? How do you do it. Mike? 
"Sports through chemistry. " Mike did have 
one small problem. Moonlighting as a 
consulting philosopher apparently damaged 
his musical taste. He sometimes had trouble 
telling the difference between country music 
and the Beatles. Mike has a very bright future 
ahead of him if he can just get one thing 
straight — the wedding march does not start 
with "Whv don't we do it in the road!"

Sae a ROTC sir? No. KiU a ROTC! Yes. Ed 
had it rough: As he was loved much by Oram 
and boat booms. He couldn't seem to find a 
major or a sport, either. Finally, as a 'ster. he 
found himself. His personality fit right in with 
Math (you know, it works, but you can 't prove 
its existence), and he discovered CREW. 
Surprising for a guy who hates water. He'd 
decided on 3/c sub cruise that he didn't like 
Subs or targets; he'd rather stay on the 
ground- Ed learned much as a 'ster. (No. you 
can't study in steerage after Taps!) Second 
Class Summer rolled around, and with it the 
bet with "Cutch" and Todd (I still don't 
believe it!) Second Class year, well there's only 
one word - Dace. First Class Summer brought

he is at crew practice, so I'll tell the story . . . 
Gritz came to USNA from Ar. not having any 
idea what the place was about. He united with 
an ex-fleet-type Plebe summer and he and 
Nols became inseparable: same weight, same

great from the edge of a 20-8tory building,

partying for the Jersey Shore: the beach, a

(we did have a good time, didn't we''?) Tom's 
Ar. habits followed him to Annapolis as was 
evidenced by his job "wake-up man" for his 
roommates (Tim, Tommie, J. B.. it's time to

until the A.M. hours, only to awake facing 
strengths, dynes, thermo. etc - . . You know all 
those sadistical courses taught in that 
Engineerig building. Tom fell in love during 
1/C summer to a beautiful '83 Cutlass and

Early in his Ufe the Ratte's realized that 
Dave was special, being the only redhead 
among the four brothers. He confirmed their 
suspicions when he spoke his first words "nuke 
bonus" . . - thus sealing his fate' Two of his 
brothers went to the UnCollege so it was not 
surprising that Navy should arrive at the Field 
House on 1-Day 1980 with the class of 84 — 
but who else came with Reef Points in their 
back pocket and already memorized!?! (He 
was to carry the Concept of Gouge into 
academics for years to come.) Memorable 
moments during plebe summer revolved 
around his insatiable appetite for ice cream, 
which would force him to draw up before his 
firsties more than once! (It was hot that 
summer for all but no one suffered as much 
as Minnesota's redbaired boy.) Ac-year began 
and Navy struggled through classes with the 
rest of us ... only to relax to his older 
brother's stereo and "take out" ice cream. 

Dave's youngster cruise was naturally on 
board a boomer — where he grew a scraggly 
beard and badgered Supply for more 
"scream ". Earning his silver dolphins between 
movies Na\y returned a "changed man" . . . 
and more fervently a nuke than before (can 
you say "$6K Bonus"?) He began bis studies 
as a Marine E. anticipating NRC interxiews 
and only sweated once — Na\y vs. the Rocket, 
staying up late into the wee hours nearly every 
night. Later he was able to begin bis social life 
and Holii B. replaced ice cream in his lovelife. 
With a new red station wagon bought we can

Hampton, South Carolina 

Operations Analysis, Supply 


Greg made his way to USNA via the 
backwoods of South Carolina which provides 
some insight to his character. It didn 't take 
Greg long to make himself comfortable as a 
midn. During the course of plebe year he 
managed to start several new habits such as 
smoking, drinking, and swearing. Youngster 
year, after trying various afternoon activities 
(YP's, sailing, etc.) Greg found his niche on 
ISO's and earned his no cover chit for life. 
Greg's acsdemic achievements were over- 
shadowed by his pursuit to live an easy life. 
Being the company wardroom rat for several 
years it was only appropriate that he became 
wardroom pres. The one aspect everyone 
(including COsI will remember first about 
Greg will be his room. Room standards simply 
didn't exist. In his natural habitat Greg could 
usually be found in the rack at any hour and 
must have set a record for classes missed over 
4 years. First class year he modified his room 
with the purchase of a computer. This wasn't 
your normal PC, it allowed him to enjoy video 
games and OLD MASH*** at home. First 
class summer was a real shock to Greg on 
Marine Option and put his career plans in the 
air. Through a chain of events Greg found or 
rather his service selection found him the 
Supply Corps. Best of luck.

Plebe summer was interesting (What's a

forgot, sir!?). He managed to validate himself 
right into a hole (Have you climbed out yet?). 
Youngster year was better for Tom: a 3.00 - 
a first! • and Connie made life easier. Cuffer 
and Dobbs also made life-interesting. Second

question his dedication to surface line: subs 
began to look good. Well, like always, Tom 
decided to put it off as long as possible. On 
to the summer of '83: YP cruise, Elisa. and 
home. (Not bad Wing-man!) Considering all, 
you might say this last year has been a 
challenge for Tom. Squad leader twice, (What 
happened the first time?) Tom's role model 
just couldn't be beat (never did like the 
dentist, did you?). But as we all know, he was 
always there when needed. Service selection 
came and Tom's true self came through -

Daniel J. Adams 

Uncle Dan 

Brick, New Jersey 

Ocean Engineering, Marine Pilot 

Dan came running in from Brick, N.J. (exit 
7A) via NAPS thanks to Al's intense recruiting 
techniques. Dan's post NAPS gunginess 
quickly waned as did his desire to please Al 
hy cutting weight off of his already massive 
6-6. 1 7fy lb body. Being a misplaced 60's flower 
child, Dan's music tastes were under constant 
scrutiny as was his music bible. His "punk 
rock" posters provided a psychedelic aura to 
what would have been a drab decor, even Bud 
agreed with that one. Since all of Dan's heroes 
expired (i.e. Hendrix. Morrison} bis only 
shoulder left to cry on was that of Timothy 
Leary. While serving his country in San Diego 
1/c summer Dan 's appetite shifted to his Suzie 
Q and her Barbara. Swimming across the bay 
with those Cahfornia curves turned out to be 
a natural aphrodisiac for Dan. As a matter of 
fact. Dan opted to go into the Marine Corps. 
They tell me that the Corps is a great place 
to start a family. To the best "XO" and friend. 
Good Luck. 

Edwin Leigh Armistead 


Yorktown, Virginia 

Physical Science, Navy NFO 

The man will be a legend in his time, 
whenever that will be! Leigh came to USNA 
from the growing metropolis of Yorktown, 
VA., a place where sidewalks don't exist and 
where big nights were spent at the 7-Eleven! 

Leigh had 1 goal, and that was to be a Navy 
pilot, we even remember his flying lessons with 
Chuck during Plebe summer! Tragic was the 
day he had to settle for NFO. Another one of 
his dreams came to an end when the dean told 
him that with a 1.1 he should switch from 
Naval Arch to Phy Sci. 

A funny thing is bow nobody realized what 
a ladies-man he really was, like going to 5 
consecutive dances with 5 different girls! 
Maybe because be didn't date any of them a 
second time?! We will also remember the life 
of the Party for the Army-Navy game in '82. 
especially Keith! That's probably what started 
the war between them, where Leigh lost 2 fine 
airplanes and a hammock! Leigh is also a 
modest guy. be wouldn't wear bis N-star 
sweater just because it bad a little black M 
on it. For him everything 
strength and coordination, Wi 
of luck on bis boxing, in 
thought processes amazed i

to do with China?" As one of your 9 
roommates here at Canoe U. I want you to

James Ashley Clark 


Ocean Springs, Mississippi 

Aerospace Engineering, Navy Air 

James came to the Boat School from the 
Deep South, but forgot and left his accent at 
home. We all thought he wanted that debonair 
"James Bond" mystique when he refused to 
be called "Jim" or "Jimmy" ■ it was only 
"James", and an occasional "Jimbo-de-dimbo" 
or "Ashley". 4/c Sweat-er -Clark bad a pretty 
rough plebe year. He lost his high school 
girlfriend spring leave and the PE tests made 
him realize what an uncoordinated spastic he 
really was. His trademark, a laser-beam study 
light (to keep bis eyes 20/20). kept the whole 
room awake. James returned 3/c year with a 
vision. He knew be could become a stud and 
began to work out hard. He pushed himself 
all the way to Ft. Benning where he got his 
jump wings. 2/c year was the Geek year. He 
took the only real major ■ Aero ■ and paid for 
it with many Mother B weekends. He bought 
his dream car (Celica GT) and guarded it with 
top security - bis own father couldn't drive it. 
James had a relapse of bis studliness and 
blanked out on his plebe wrestling one night 
during a rumble when our plebettes took him 
down for the count. During 1/c summer, plebe 
detail was dropped due to a very difficult 
FOREX to New Zealand: bar- 
in-the-wardroom, Kim, cocktail parties, Fiona, 
wet navy, and "Debbie does Dunedin. *" He bad 
impressed Jill so much the year before that 
he became our token lat semester Batt tool. 
We welcomed him back 2nd semester with 
open arms - especially Pete. Despite all the 
prodding be had to go Grunt or glowing green, 
be kept his sights on the F-18 and is sure to 
Cmd his dream come true (unless he parties 
too often like he did after Service Selection) 
in sunny Penaacola. 


Ramon Antonio CoUazo Jr. 
Glen Burnie, Maryland 
General Engineering, Navy NFO 

Ray came to the academy from a town, not 
too far away from Mother "B" known as Glen 
Burnie. After a disillusioning plebe summer 
that left him unprepared for the "POW" 
experience. Ray eagerly accepted the personal 
interest shown toward him by his ac year 
squad leaders. 

Plebe year was otherwise uneventful with 
the exception of learning how to write (viva 
la Revolution) and his induction into the Aqua 
Rock Society. 

After a terrifying excursion on the high seas 
in a Navy Yawl (or as he told his mother). Ray 
returned to youngster year with a new 
determination to "find his roots. " The beans 
and rice were flowing freely and the Salsa 
never stopped (remember Manuela) as our 
Ramoncito reeled in his ethnic bliss. But 
something was missing from the wine, women, 
and song of life. fiay. never one to let a good 
deal stay gtnxl. left his present girl in search 
of a different breed. When he found her he 
thought the good times would never end and 
frankly neither did we. 

Also youngster year. Ray subscribed to the 
Major of the Year Club that would eventually 
take him from Poly Sci to Aero to General in 
a whirlwind of academic interests. 

Second class year brought stability to Ray's 
turbulent academy experience. He decided to 
live a little outside of the classroom thus he 
made his final major selection. The cultural 
crusade also came to an end with the advent 
of a girl who wasn't even Puerto Rican. 

As service Selection rolled around, Ray was 
steadfast in his decision. He was definitely 
going to choose something. What it was 
exactly depended on who he talked to moat 
recently. Ray fmally chose navy NFO and with 
that we wish him much luck and success in 
the future.

Russel — I personally refuse to call him 
Dok. Rusnel operates on ti slightly different 
plane than most people around this place. 
Some of my early clues were when he woke 
up one morning and cracked about every joint 
in his body (knuckles, arms, legs, neck, back, 
eyelids . - . everything). My second clue was 
when Scott walked in and found him sitting 
in the closet. 

But despite his quirks. Russel is probably 
one of the best people I know. There is Utile 
doubt in anyone's mind (with the exception 
probably of bis onn) that Russel can be 
bizarre; but anyone that can put up with Scott 
and I for two years must have something going 
for him. 

Russ has a beautiful fiancee, Tberese. who 
I'm sure will lake care of bim in the future. 
I wish you both happiness and success in the 
future and I hope the Surface Navy treats you

Ern strolled into the Boat school from the

Manatee campaign. Although the Company 
Mellow Officer preached mellowness, behind 
closed doors not even the largest family sized 
Ban roll on could keep him dry. Not one to 
shirk personal hygiene, be still stows his shoe 
strings. Throughout his academic career. Ern 
never once completed a technical homework 
problem without the gouge. As a matter of 
fact, his gouge box perpetually runneth over. 
After a short first class cruise. Ern the 
professional stud, attended the Amphibious 
Assault School in Fort Lauderdale. During his 
final vear, he never missed an episode of 
Cheers, HiU Street, or Monday Night F(X>thall

Griff flew into Canoe U (well not really, he 
was in the back seat and aJways will be) from 
Butler. Pa. His love of airplanes led him into 
the Aerospace Dept. but one of his ex-Marine 
buddies led him right back out. Griff really 
didn't mind the transition into G.E. because 
the free time enabled him to join the 
recreational reading book of the month club. 
Griff was known to be a hard, but vivid 
sleeper. The rack was his podium for such 
famous quotes: "You guys better do your 
Graphics homework." "It's all for the 
audience, "and "I'll take my dirty laundry over 
to Jody's. " (We have a feeling that Jody will 
be doing a lot of Griffs laundry) Griffs easy 
going style fit in well with the abusive firsties

in your naval career even if it means financial

Jonathan Edward Hartman 
Uncle Jon 

Fish Lake Valley, Nevada 
General Engineering, USMC 

Jon Hartman flew out from a ranch in 
Nevada and quietly began his military career 
in the humid summer of 1980. Ambitions to 
graduate from USNA with a Mech. E. degree 
and a Navy Air billet pushed him through his 
first couple of years here. Although Jon was 
over 2700 miles from home, he carried with 
him a trait that was easily recognized by those 
who knew him - Jon was impeccably 
organized. We often kidded John that he 
stepped over the line in his efforts to keep 
track of his daily life in an exact and 
disciplined manner, but we couldn 't help but 
admit that Jon "had his act together. "He sure 
did make efficient use of his index cards, 
calendars, filing systems, and even the 
computer to organize anything from class 
notes to financial transactions to PCR gouge. 

Jon was a hard worker in whatever he did. 
whether it be struggling over homework 
problems, running with company-mates over 
some nasty jogging trails, or even racking. Jon 
was a pretty sound sleeper, and it was often 
an enormous challenge to ensure that he was 
upright for morning quarters. Jon bad a 
friendly and outgoing personality that made 
him a favorite in the company, and bis bold 
leadership traits made him a natural company 
nder during the second semester of 1st 

Somewhere along the way Jon decided to 
join the Band of Brothers in the green 
uniform. Despite going Corps, we all still came 
to love Jon, and so did a cute gal from back 
home who will tie the knot with him in a June 
wedding. It's a sure thing that the Lord will 
continue to honor Jon as he heads out into the 
real world to exert a very profitable and 
positive influence on the lives that come into 
contact with his own.

Those who go down to the sea in ships. Who 
do business on great waters; They have seen 
the works of the Lord, And his wonders in the 
deep. For He spoke and raised up a stormy 
wind. Which lifted up the waves of the sea. 
They rose up to the heavens, they went down 
to the depths; Their soul melted away in their 
misery. They reeled and staggered like a 
drunken man. And were at their wits end. 
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, 
And He brought them out of their distresses. 
He caused the storm to be still. So that the 
waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were 
glad because they were quiet; So He guided 
them to their desired haven. Let them give 
thanks to the Lord for His loving-kindness. 
And for His wonders to the sons of men!

required his personal "cold spot" life support 
system and often "searched and rescued" 
gallons of ice cream, and shopping bags fuU

ocean engineering major by his extensive use 
of gouge. He often produced amazing gouge, 
when all others had failed, as if he had pulled 
it out of his "poop shute." Unfortunately

question a first classmans sexual preferances 
Plebe year he got off to one of the fastest 
starts in Academy history, only to blow it all 
in the now famous "Beer an Pretzel affair" 

Andoo's escapades during cruise are well 
documented and no matter how much be 
attempts to down play them, it is true that 
he has wreacked havoc, caused panic, and 
spread social unrest in every port he visited. 
On Blacks beach in San Diego he laughed at 
the Nude Bathers. In Tiajuana he drank 
cactus whiskey and dared Los Federales to 
arrest him. In Frisco he viewed the annual Gay 
Dav Parade with amusement and showed 
absolutely no sympathy for the handicapped 
lesbians with children fund. 

Athletically. Andy starred on the hockey 
team. His powerful defensive play retired 
several opposing players early. Lettering all

Shizzy came to us from Paulsboro, N J., a 
small town surrounded by chemical plants 
which may explain a lot of things. As soon as 
he set foot inside the "Yard" he was 
determined to excel. During Plebe summer, he 
somehow managed to blend into the woodwork 
and. at the same time, put up nith his Latino 
roomie (what did you say your name was?). 
Plebe year was uneventful, except for choosing 
Ocean Engineering as his major (the mellowest 
major around$$$S). Youngster cruise, though 
the shortest cruise in VSNA history, couldn't 
persuade him to become one of the "elite" in 
the Silent Service as he began to lean towards 
Navy Air. 

Youngster year Jim came back with what 
would turn out to be an unreachable quest ~~ 
Stars! For three semesters he labored, only to 
just miss the mark each time. Bruised but not 
defeated, he realized that being the model 
midshipman just wasn't meant to be. Thus, he 
redirected bis energy toward a more attain- 
able, and invigorating, goal. Summing up as 
much charm and vulnerability as he could, he 
somehow managed to catch the attention of a 
Univ. of Maryland coed. Linda. Soon, 
thoughts of Fluids (remember the Rocket) and 
Ocean Structures were replaced by thoughts 
of other structures. Jim. not one to rush into 
anything, realized in just 8 months that she 
was that special someone, and hopelessly 
caught the dreaded Engagement Disease. 
After that, he'd never be the same, as was 
evident in bis newly -acquired taste in clothes. 
Upon graduation. Mr and Mrs. will sally forth 
to Pensacola in search of the coveted wings of

Ch uck was a hie to make some las ting

ear casts really come out of the fall issue of 
G. Q.? Chuck's classy appearance was carried 
off the field as well. Always an eyeful for the

Scott Michael Newman 


Baltimore, Maryland 

Aerospace Engineering, Na\T 


Scott joined us at USNA after a one hour 
car ride from Baltimore. This could be one 
reason why plebe year bad such little affect 
on him. since be knew home was just over the 
horizon. From day one. Mugs was always one 
of the most dynamic people in the company, 
that is. when he decided to open his mouth. 
(How can you go for four years without saying 
a word'') Of course, he bad some more passive 
ways of letting us know he was about, 
especially in the wardroom Scott bad a very- 
successful academic career, being the only 
Aero to both survive and keep bis grades up. 
His efforts did have some influence on his 
otherwise drab social life, as the number of 
weekends be didn't take will attest. Scott's 
sportsmanship will never be forgotten. No 
separated shoulder, bruised or broken nose, or 
cracked eyebrow could ever come between him 
and his endeavors. (Remember passing out 
from that strenuous PE lecture") Scott 
showed his true colors in Pasadena when he 
refused to let any of his friends meet bis 
sponsors' daughters (How about that Califor- 
nia basket leave"! Scott was an excellent 
roommate and friend and be deserves the best 
of wishes for the future See you m P-coia. 




"Scott, you didn't'" 
"Thank you. " (smiling! 
"That's disgusting'"

PaJmtree came to the boat school from 
Mahopac. NY, home of famous celebrities 
such as Henry Winkler and the 3-529. Nick's 
plebe year was relatively uneventful except for 
one minor 5(XX) series offense. Youngster year, 
Nick soon began his normal routine of life at 
I'SNA. Any late night at the hall Nick could 
be seen studying and sweating profusely. Nick 
met a certain "Naomi of the North" youngster 
year and it looked like he was going to be 
sharing his igloo with her after graduation. It 
all ended suddenly second class year, however, 
and Nick was never the same after that. Soon 
after I believe he decided to go Nuke. Nick 
never really desened the nickname kneepads 
because he went to three striper boards and 
struck out at all three even though the Batt 
O was a nuke. First class year was a complete 
change for Nick. He gave up his geeking and 
four consecutive 4.0s and began to lift weights 
so he could be like the grease-man He also 
became a party animal. Trinity College will 
never forget the night of Nick's 21at birthday. 
Good luck Ens. Nicky Kneepads and watch 
out for Japanese freighters.

Nacional De Panama 

Javi came to USNA via the Panamanian 
connection and having been used to the slower 
lifestyles of Central America he had to learn 
to adjust to the fast paced life at USNA. He 
was always late for class. 

Javi's grasp of the English language was a 
little problem during plebe summer. Who can 
forget Javi being fried for not knowing the 
National Anthem! He knew bis but not ours! 
Or how about his attempt to save Mike from 

Javi was never one to work hard at anything. 
He will be remembered for bis strenuous 
afternoon workouts. It must have been tough 
for him to get out of bed every day for 
formation. His favorite passion was to sit in 
bis room with a cigarette in one hand and a 
coke in the other He dreamed of this. Javi 
liked classes, they enabled him to catch up on 
his sleep! 

Since he was the only smoker among us, Javi 
was always switching roommates. Of course he 
always got along with his roommates like when 
he got fried a 4000 aeries offense over a 

For a man who by law can't marry until 
1986, Javi sure has been flirtin with disaster. 
It all boils down to the BB theory. The 
ladies-man at all times, Javi sure knew how 
to love them and leave them. That is until he 
met Dawn! 

In a final glimpse of what it must have been 
like to live around Javi at USNA. I think it 
can accurately be defined in one word: sloth. 
Javi was the epitome of slothliness. We will 
all really miss you and your adventures. Have 
fun in Panama and don 't get married before 
you are 30! 

Scott S. Spearing 


Danvers, Massachusetts 

Political Science, Marine Air 

Scott arrived at the Academy the same way 
he left complaining the whole way. Being a 
native Bostonian Scott could always be 
identified by his use of the "proper english" 
(what accent?). Taking up rugby early in his 
academy career, Scott gave his all for Navy 
and shattered the record for the number of 
broken noses. On the academic side. Scott 
took up the "rigorous " Poly Sci program as his 
major. All Poly Sci did for him was make him 
cry about doing papers, at the last minute, and 
let him go to Georgetown twice a week to 
"research". We all know or at least assume 
what be was researching ■ beer and women 
Scott's two favorite combinations. Mr. 
Fidelitey still as his hometown honey, but we 
all know how that goes. Scott has had to ftght 
off the women since be has been here. We 
know he has done everything in his power to 
resist, but. the Trinity girls, the "Porcelain 
Princess" and other such desirables are just 
too overpowering at times. Through these four 
vears Scott has been a friend to all. We did 
have to put up with his crying at times, but 
then again he was always the first one that we 
would cry to. Scott's been a great friend to us 
all and we know that he'll do great in the 
Corps and anything else he decides on in life. 
Take care and stay "Spears" . . . 



Jerome Stephen Stefanko Jr. 


Allentown, Pennsylvania 

Chemistry, Nuclear Submarines 

Jerry came to Canoe U expecting to rip the 
academic facilities apart; with 155Q SAT's 
and valedictorian of his high school, what 
would you expect? Since he had no problems 
with academics or rates, his main goal was to 
stay out of trouble. He did this by becoming 
an out of company plebe. He had more 
weekends plebe year with the Glee Club than 
most of us had as firsties. Unfortunately, 
companies tend to forget you when you 're out 
of sight. Therefore it wasn't until second class 
year that Jerry finally got those big stripes he 
was after, but not without forgetting bis own 
company at the interview. He later lost those 
stripes in a power play to a four striper, but 
during first class year he regained three and 
his "wife" didn't outrank him. 

Jerry met Marjorie on a romantic moonlight 
cruise on the Chesapeake Bay in an 80-foot 
cabin cruiser. Together they survived the 
cruise and the trials and tribulations of second 
class summer. Marjorie wasn't the first three 
striper that Jerry dated at the Naval 
Academy. It must be that affinity for 
intelligent women in uniform. 

Jerry has really changed at USNA. He 
arrived a short, meek, quiet little guy but 
when he leaves, he will be known as the beer 
drinking, m uscle bulging, womanizing man 
that he really is! (His alcoholic tolerances just 
amaze everyone.) 

Of course Jerry went nuclear power, what 
would you expect from someone who drives a 
Ford Fairmont We will always miss you (Ask 
Jerry, be knows, he knows everything). Good 
Luck. Hope you have lota of little Stefankos

Management, Marine Corps 

Doug came to his second home via the 
Marine Military preppie school, wearing his 
hod Lacoste pink and green cammies. Hound 
had that whooped look in his eye from day 
one. Though he had been away from home for 
a year, he still possessed one of the longest 
umbilici cords in history. He went home 
every weekend he could to work on his car but, 
supposedly, never to see his "buddy". Of 
course, we knew better. His dad worked on the 
z-plane while he sucked face! Amazingly, he 
still bad $100 a month phone bills, that should 
have been $50. except that be had to explain 
things twice. Doug's academic career was 
non-existent. He could frequently be seen 
roaming the balls at night, working on Co. 
business, of course. Even though Doug was an 
integral part of the navy's national caliber 
rugby team he was always getting abused by 
the GETO, producing the famous saying "you 
guys are too tough for me. I'll never mess with 
you guys again!" Doug was the easiest and 
most abused of us all, but only because he was 
the only one who was willing to put everything 
be bad into the company and the class. 
Without him. '84 wouldn't have been '34.

Jim came to the Naval Academy from a 
suburb of Chicago. He quickly became knorni 
to his friends as Shizuo- His career is a never 
ending series of zany antics and has been 
marked by a general disrespect for just about 
everything. For one thing, nhen this kid 
drinks. look out. He has slapped his best 
friend's mother, destroyed TV sets at Army, 
beat up officers and gone swimming in the 
creeks of Annapolis in the dead of winter- 
Being a chem-head Jim has access to assorted 
explosives which, at one time, resulted m a fire 
alarm. Typically, Shiz works out for hours, 
then studies until 4 and wonders why he feels 
so tired. However, his intensive workouts have 
produced one of the best athletes in the 
playboy gang. The Tajiri room has always 
been a spectacle. If you enter into his realm 
on a weekend, you may not get out alive. His 
personality is subject to assorted quirks His 
big kick for senior year was culture. This 
resulted in the acquisition of a fledgling 
collection of classical music and a renovated 
wardrobe. Unfortunately, his ability to use the 
English language failed to experience equal 
improvement Finally. Shiz was a member of 
the infamous and ill-fated Savage River 
expedition. Overall. Shiz is a fun and decent 
person and has been a super and unpredict-

He IS immortal, a perfect physical specimen 
and the coolest person he knows As a plebe 
his incredible wit led him to bet against Na\y 
when his home team came to town The next 
four years were spent doing what he does best 
- showing off He went to jump school land 
got a rashi. vacationed in Bermuda land 
v.Tecked a moped) and honed his marksman- 
ship (but couldn't even qualify on rifle). Then 
he found the ultimate way to show off and 
took charge of conditioning squad. Coach Lenz 
was so impressed, he put Keith on the cover 
of his new book. Next he bought a '53 Jaguar. 
but bad to tow it home. At the end of the year 
his mischievous side took over as be terrorized 
the company with his gunpowder contrap- 
tions. First class year followed with the Great 
Savage River Fishing Expedition He began to 
steep whenever he wanted to (mostly during 
class) and stayed clear of trouble by employing 
his great manipulative powers I asked bim 
about the future and he replied. "I'm a 
MARINE'" and something about. 'Habba du 
gi. habba du ga. kapernk. kapernk." His 
shaved head proved it. My roommate had 
turned into a Marine. I'm sure he'll have fun 
showing off as Mr Pep for the class of '8S. 
But most of his time will probably be spent 
chasing those girls in blue lSer\ice Dress Blue 
that is). He has been all over the world — MP 
at Andrews. E-5 at Tinker. 0-1 in D.C.. E-5 
at Point Mugu . . . Anyway, it was a good four

taught English, earned a 4.0 and four stripes. 
Well, almost everything ■ you never did run

Except for wrestling leaaons youngster

from this bastion of male virility towards more 
intellectual pursuits. Intellect came to a 
screeching halt Cirat class cruise, when you 
went to Hawaii to further Canadian -American

After going to NAPS, Steve joined the 
rest of us here at Navy and quickly made a 
name for himself by being the only one to 
make it through plebe summer without getting 
fried. Steve is quite a runner. He ran 
Cross-Country and during plebe year he ran 
a 50-mile race. I shudder at the thought but 
Steve baa the right idea, for life is a marathon 
not a 100-yard dash. That is the way Steve 
looks at the personal relationship he has with 
Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior Jesus loves 
Steve and Steve loves Jesus. Christianity is 
not a set of rules to live by, but the endurance 
of an everlasting relationship with Christ and 
that is what motivates Steve to do what he 
does. Steve's lifestyle challenges us as he runs 
with endurance the race that is set before him, 
fixing bia eyes upon Jesus, the author and 
perfector of faith. (Hebrews 12:1,2)

Then there was the V of M lacrt^ase tailgater. 
sorry you missed the game. Second class year

unprepared, Kath brought her flute. Mickey 
Mouse ears, and a case of homesickness not 
even a letter a day from Mom could cure. 
Having a l/c sister upstairs helped - nothing 
like a little TV and hot chocolate when curled 
up on Joanie's rack! While Kathi's plebe year 
exploits may have come to a screeching halt, 
youngster year brought a whole new aet of 
adventures in the form of a 6 foot hulk named 
"Markie." Don't look so innocent, we know

After a 2 year long distance engagement

Why anyone would leave the Virgin Islands 
to come to Crabtown we'll never know but 
Taco did. Eddie came to USNA a highly 
touted track star only to become captain of the 
excused squad instead. Despite his annual 
knee operation be managed to fit in a year of 
ISO tf football and eventually even convinced 
himself he was the "star" of the company 
lightweight team first class year. 

Taco was as close to being married as one 
could get upon arrival in Annapolis. As 
youngster year came to a close it was becoming 
very clear that Eddie would be one of the first 
to walk through the tunnel of swords on the 
chapel steps in May, 84. Second class year, 
however, seemed to show him the light and be 
will now graduate a free man like the rest of 
ua (we think). 

Eddie spent four years here thinking of two 
things (besides girls): motorcycles and surface 
line. We are convinced that he will do much 
better with surface line than he did with the 
others. Good luck on the USS Long Beach and 
we hope you get v<

Sugar C'Sug*') 
Elizabeth, New Jersey 
Enghsh, Marine Corps 

Sug hailed from Exit 13 off the turnpike and 
made it through Plebe Summer relatively 
unacortched (only 2 Form-2's), but she nearly 
burned herself out trying to pass SC, SM, EN 
and NS. With the help of two crazy roomies 
(Sue and Di), she was able to pull it together 
during finals. Thus missing the ACBoard by 
3/10 of a point. Second semester went a little 
better. Sug went from a .78 at 4 wks to a 2.5, 
while starting at 3B on the Varsity Softball 
Team. (Softball was a varsity sport back then.) 

On Youngster Y'P Cruise we all found out 
why Sug would never go Surface. That year 
she became 22's first 3/c flamer. An 'F' on the 
Statics final convinced her to go from MECH 
E to HE. Known for her bluntness, Sug was 
once asked what she was allergic to. C^ asked 
her. She replied "Everything that's green and 
grows, sir. " 

Sug went from 3/c Flamer to 2/c Torch. Just 
ask anyone in '86 who gave chow calls near 
2004. When S. W. departed, Sug got the 
pleasure of living with R. B. Room 2004 soon 
became known as the Icebox. Sug took her 
anger out on the books and hit a 2.79 at the 
semesters end. 

1/C summer took Sug to France via LCC 20. 
Upon return to CONUS, she returned to 
USNA for her 3rd consecutive year with the 
people at NASP. She also spent a month 
teaching '87 how to fire a .46. Even though she 
rarely called the column rights on the right 
foot, everyone thought she would go Corps. 
She did too until a week before service 
selection when she was torn between Navy 
Crypto and USMC. Aa it turned out she 
decided to be one of the Few and Proud.

Di came from the land where you "worsh" 
your clothes and "arn" your pants. You'd 
think that they didn 't have anow in 
Hooeierland 'cos her favorite line was "Ha! It 's 
snowing!" at 1:00 in the morning. She spent 
plebe and youngster year running from crew 
practices to D&B performances. It took her 
two years to decide to stick to crew, and her 
heart's been at the boathouse ever since. After 
practice, she was always too tired or hungry 
to etudy. When it came to classes, she thought 
it was "better to be lost than confused. " She 
was lost moet of the time. Study hours were 
better spent operating the 2-0 Deli and Disco 
2021. Thanks to Di, (and her uncle's xmas 
presents) 2-0 DeU soon branched-out into 
deUAitchen/TV room. Needless to say, her 
favorite hobby was collecting electrical 
appliances. Her moet traumatic experience 
ever was when that one favorite appliance 
broke — her waterpik. (to the sheer delight 
of her roommates who could now sleep in the 
morning) As a firatie, Di's professionalism and 
leadership abilities began to shine, during 
plebe detail. Conversation at the table 
revolved around "bring me a form-2 and pass 
the A-1 aauce." As crew captain. Di felt 
reapoaaible for the well-being of her team. She 
felt that the crew that parties together, rows 
together (that waa her excuse for all those 
Friday-night crew parties) Anyone who can 
cook in the room and watch a little TV on the

be an Admiral in the Supply Corps. Good luck

started at NAPS, and come to USNA with

through plebe summer, and never saw a

socializing was much easier for her. When she 
wasn't chasing Navy pilots (or NFO's). she was 
running around Georgetown, where the

to convince her that he waa a mid in 22nd Co.

JJ never let too many things bounce him 
from his comfortable laid-back every-day 
mode: not piebe summer, not finals, not 
PCR's. not mile runs, not severed en- 
gagements, not CC, not even four years of bad 
luck with roommates. In fact, the only thing 
that could consistently accelerate the moun- 
tain man 's heart rate was a road trip with good 
friends and cheap brew. And it usually took 
JJ to make thmgs happen or to get things 
done: A lot of those road trips might never 
have happened without Ludes lighting fires 
under our butts. 

Among the people who matter most ■ "The 
Gang" - John earned tremendous respect and 
friendship. Very few of the genuine "Good 
Times" - and there were many - occurred 
m(/iout JJ being a central figure Yet beyond 
the numerous traits which make him such a 
great friend. John has a quality which we all 
recognize- This quality makes him a capable, 
efficient, and clear-headed officer. So let the 
good times roil. JJ. but don't sell yourself 
short. Few people have your traits and talents. 
And when you're down, think about us. about 
"The Gang". And we'll pick you right up.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, 
and remember what peace there may be in 
silence- As far as possible, without surrender, 
be on good terms with all persons. Speak your 
truth quietly and clearly . . Many persons 
strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is 
full of heroism . , , nurture strength of spirit 
to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not 
distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many 
fears are born of fatigue and loneliness 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle 
with yourself. You are a child of the universe 
no less than the trees and the stars . . . and 
whether or not it is clear to you. no doubt the 
universe is unfolding as it should . . . in the 
noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. 
With all Its sham, drudgery, and broken 
is still a beautiful world.

the Chicago suburbs and began to decorate his 
bulletin board with Form-2s. He met the First 
Company boys on restriction and soon became 
an integral part of Fun One. Suki had hoped 
to fly when he graduated, but his eyes would 
not cooperate, forcing him to sport geekers 
plebe year. A lover of the good life. Suki spent 
many late nights partying with the boys - how 
'bout them swimmin' parties! Suki entered 
Youngster year with a huge stereo system and 
a laid back attitude, but never could seem to 
Bee eye to eye with the Tool. He was eventually 
rewarded with an inter-Brigade transfer, 
winding up in the Captain's company. Suki's 
favorite pastime has been faat cars, and he is 
another member of the porsche club. After 
trashing one 911 at the end of second class 
year, he found another one, although it is so 
hot to touch! Suki thinks that heaven can be 
found in either Hawaii or California, and he 
hopes to eventually wind up on the beach with

in the Supply Corps, so better watch that

some reason he happened to be thinking of

he was from. He was the only guy in the

on the weekend it was even easier. He spent 
every Saturday waving a Longhorn's pennant 
and all day Sunday waving his Cowboy's flag. 
It was always fun when the gang got together 
to watch Dallas and Washington play football, 
especially when the Redskins won! 

I don 't think anyone will forget the Second

He really got a kick out of Plebe Summer and 
on a number of occasions he laughed his way 
to Regimental come-arounds. Joe began

in Oceana kept her from being too disappoint- 
ed (she always preferred older men). Second 
class year brought yet another roommate and 
some rough times. Fortunately Wiggles (her

spent as much time In the hallways as possible 
during Plebe Summer, just hoping the Hrsties

would volunteer for watches just to stay in the 
hall. His only consolation was to be able to 
look at the endless pictures of bis beloved 

JB seemed to have an obsession with the 
sister services also. He spent countless hours 
on the Plebe Army Project and even more on 
it as a Youngster- Second Class year JB 
decided he needed a vacation and headed for 
the Government Country Club in Colorado. 
But. he never let us forget him. as be wrote 
the Company 3 times that semester (with no 
reply). Upon returning to USNA, JB had real 
problems readjusting to the disciplined life 
here in 22. JB liked bis new room (and rack) 
so much that he found it impossible to leave, 
even for Morning Quarters. He soon found 
himself (thanks to C. C.) spending a lot more 
time in his room (but not in the rack). 

JB always made the best of every situation. 
He saved enough money to buy his Subaru and 
take his imaginary girlfriend (who was older 
than 16) back to Goucher.

Plebe Summer He was well known in Mike 
Company for having to shave 2 or 3 times a 
day. It seemed like some firsty wouJd ask him 
at every formation if he had shaved that day. 
As academic year rolled around, 'Strup was 
ready to play J. V. Lai and breeze through 
Plebe Year At first, academics gave him a 
httle trouble until he worked a bit harder. He 
also found out who the gouge profs were and 
became one of the brothers of PHY SCI. Even 
though life became easier, Strup was still 
somewhat of a sweat. He has been known to 
brush off 20 minutes before formation and 
leave for class half an hour early. 

'Strup has wanted to be a Marine from the 
beginning. Even though he occasionally talked 
about going Navy, none of us bad any doubts 
that he would be going to Quantico after 
graduation. The Marines are lucky to be

West Point. Air Force, and the Liberty Bowl, 
as well as many other places in support of

First semester youngster year, his academic 
prowess allowed him to meet the Supe, the

Second class summer, his travels took him

Joel G. Bishop 


Dallas, Texas 

Naval Architect, Navy Air 

Following in big brother's footsteps. Sloth 
came to the Naval Academy directly out of 
high school, full of ambition and professionai 
zeal. This attitude lasted through plebe year 

antagonistic grilling at a striper board along 
Hir/i the corrupting influence of Habib the 
Terrible eventually corrected his attitude 
problem. Joel's "excitable" nature and 
nocturnal habits unjustly led to bis being 
tagged with the nickname "the Sloth" by an 
ungrateful roommate. 

Better knomi for his academic exploits than 
his athletic prowess. Joel somehow always 
managed to get his B in PE so he could keep 
his stsrs, despite a broken nose in boxing and 
a rude introduction to the mat in wrestling. 
His roommates grew accustomed to bearing 
Joel moan and groan about what a tough time 
Narcs have academically, but they also grew 
accustomed to his pulling out a 4 after tinals. 

An avowed submariner when he first came 
to USNA. Joel eventually saw the light and 
decided to carry on the family tradition. Go 
Navy Air, see you in Pensacola. 

George Steven Carradini 
Deer Park, New York 
English United States Marine 

George stormed the academy with high 
hopes. His crew cut showed that. Of course his 
expectations were never met. How could they 
be':' He was a Marine ROTC from the 
University of Colorado at Boulder (and let the 
whole company know it) He was fun. at first. 
How can anyone forget George Curtis' feet 
getting tied to his chair, or the famous chapel 
climbing episode which netted George and 
seven classmates a Class 'A ' under the real 
conduct system! However, recons soon got old 
and form-2's were coming fast and furious.

Reisterstown, Maryland 

Applied Science. Na\y Air 

Where do you stsrt with a preppie like Slim 
Dog" Maybe at NAPS where he set new 
records as quarterback. For interceptions 
Right from the start we realized that Slim was 
nobody to mess with, as he returned from his 
Saturday Night Escapades bruised and 
bloody, but always ready to go another round. 
If Slim played hard then he worked twice as 
bard. He was the only mid to have his only 
key to Nimit2 Library. When not hitting the 
books, you could find Slim out on the pitcher's 
mound for Navy baseball. He was a hit with 
the team, except maybe the outfielders, whom 
he kept running around on most afternoons 
Slim really showed his stuff t'irst class year 
He was sitting pretty with brand new wheels, 
his old girlfriend, many cold brews and a fresh 
can of Copenhagen. He surprised us all with 
his genius academics first semester and he 
even settled down long enough to give Igor a 
second chance. Hey, Slim! somewhere out 
there is an F-18 with your name on it. Until 
then. P-cola will have itself a Golden Boy and 
a great pilot. Take it light and best of luck 
from "The Infamous Five. "

Bay St. Louis, Mississippi 

Naval Architecture, Surface-EDO 

J. J. emerged out of southern Mississippi 
and came to USNA directly from high school. 
He had never been north of Tennessee before 
I-dav. so to J J Maryland was as far north 
as Maine. He figured if it snowed here it could 
not be in the South. 

During Plebe year. Jim disappeared into the 
sailing team and spent all his time either 
sailing, studying, or drinking. The fact that he 
managed to maintain a 3.5 average amazed his 
classmates. His roommate once accused him of 
being practically illiterate, and realistically he 
had the spelling ability God promised Bill the 

Being on the sailing team and traveling 
everv weekend was not enough for J. J. He 
decided the only way to get away from USNA 
was to transfer. Since Southern Cal and 
Florida were not offering an exchange program 
with USNA. the Coast Guard Academy would 
have to do. It was real convenient since his girl 
friend was only an hour from USCGA. First 
class vear provided some changes for Jim. 
After 2 letters and countless hours of sailing^ 
J. J. left the sailing team and reappeared in 
his company. As Sub-Commander he always 
claimed he bad alot to do. but everyone knows 
Sub'Commanders do not do anything. As 
Brigade First Lt. he did even less if that was 

Being locked up here for four years did not 
teach Jim a thing, because two days after 
graduation he will be married. We wish Jim 
and Tammy the beat of luck, and hope she can 
keep him out of trouble in his Navy career. 
God Bless Them.

Pittsburg, California 

Applied Science, Navy Air 

The Stickman came to Canoe V. with one 
thing in nund: to 'drive' ships. However, we 
learned that he often changes his mind. After 
3/c cruise he became loyai to the airdale cause. 
He switched to nuclear power after 2/c 
summer at New London. Moving back to air 
and then going Nuke again, and finally being 
forced by the Nuclear Power Rejection Board 
to opt with Navy Air. all in l/c year, he finally 
ended the Human Twig's little chess game 

Unlike some of his classmates. Frank was 
civilized before he arrived at the Boat School. 
His fine little lady was "numero uno" in his 
mind 100^ of the time. She kept him busy 
by either writing letters almost daily or drying 
tears over the phone. Their only argument was 
over the subject of how many little Crespos 
they were going to terrorize Naval Stations 
with!!! We all know who will win that bout and 
SHE is about 5'6' tall. (We know who "wears 
the pants" in this family) But being a 
Management major. Frank can find a way to 

Frank has many friends at this institution 
of higher learning. Best of luck to you and the

James Doyle Cunningham 


Speedway, Indiana 

History, Surface 

J.D. came to the Academy with the hopes 
of being a Midshipman who would be 
mentallv, morally, and physically the best 
ever. Those hopes soon faded and his goal 
became more realistic — girls and booze. Over 
bis years here. J.D. has shown his aptitude to 
get along with anyone and sometimes noone; 
however, on the weekends, there was always 
someone. The Army/Navy game in Pasadena 
became a turning point for J.D. Having 
become engaged to his high school sweetheart 
a few weeks before, he swore his faithfulness 
to her. J.D. failed to mention his responsibility 
for ensuring that the thousands of ladies that 
came to the victory dance were entertained- 
Come on J.D., not even you could have met 
that challenge. What is that rumor we hear'!' 
. . . no more miles for Navy. 

Richard S. Dohoda 

Seward, Pennsylvania 
Chemistry, Medical School 

Rich came to the Boat School from Seward 
(or is that Sword) PA. After surviving plebe 
summer and the culture shock of WW III. the 
academic year promised to be a breeze while 
playing JV football. 

Youngster year brought on the chemistry 
major. He tackled it with a 4.0 first semester. 
"How tough is chemistry?" Rich 's varsity 
football career lasted 12 seconds. "Nice pitch 

Navy football couldn't use the services of a 
"twelve second" quarterback so be set his

Electrical Engineering, Nuclear 

Surface Line 

From the start. Ed has demonstrated that 
he was meant to be an EE. Few things that 
have come within his grasp have not been 
taken apart and put back together again. Ekl's 
room soon became the home for unwanted 
stereos. Youngster year was definitely a very 
trying time for him. Ed came back from a 
three day weekend with a broken ankle and 
crutches that would help him get around for 

Ed makes use of his spare time reading 
science fiction books requisitioned from the 
Midstore. If you can't fine it, chances are that 
Ed probably has it. He also has the distinction 
of being the video game master of 23rd 
Company. As you can see. Ed is constantly 
thinking of the future and that future looks 
bright for him. Ed is entering the Nuclear

natural born plebe). His 64 teeth served as a 
guide for others to be inspired by Paul's only 
problem, which had to be corrected by none 
other than RFN. was his inability to keep his 
eyes in the boat iSome people's boali< are just 
a little bigger than others). Plebe year. Paul's 
experiences centered around the D&B but it 
was life in 4016 that opened his eyes — all 
those new words and phrases he knows. All 
along Paul fought hard to maintain his 
innocence but the forces of fun (M. T.. 23rd 
r>' . and Cdr. B ) are winning out. After two 
vears of living in great liberty ports such as 
::-0 and 4-1 it wasn 't until he was a firstie that 
he realized what a "benny" out -of -company 
was. Although out -of -company did not always 
mean out-of-Q. NaiyAir will do well by Paul's 
services — especially when they start putting 
grand pianos in helos. 


Gary R. Frey 


Canoga Park, California 

Aerospace Engineer, Marine Air 

Gary comes to us from warm, southern 
California, where everything is twenty minutes 
from bia house. Not being satisfied with the 
Air Force or the Marines, Gary just bad to try 
the navy. Being unaccustomed to the wintery 
weather in Maryland and the nasty sickness 
that accompanied it. he soon remedied the 
situation by vowing to keep is feet warm. 
Having conquered this obstacle, he was ready 
to attack plebe year and any classmate that 
he disliked. After Herndon. it was off to the 
P.I. where most of his fantasies were fulfilled. 
One remains, however, soon to be accom- 
plished. Youngster year was full of abusing 
roommates who did not know any better, 
firing bottlerockets and studying Physics on 
Hospital Point. Second class year brought the 
reality of academics and the release of tensions 
in Memorial Hall. Finally, after all of that 
work. First Class year arrived, being full of 
travel, skiing, too much EE and a return home 
for Thanksgiving. Good luck Gary and we all 
hope to see you flying with the Marines very

Marietta, Georgia 

Applied Science, Navy NFO 

When he arrived at USNA. Hal (Harold to 
bis friends) bad a singular purpose - sailing. 
Sometimes sailing would take priority over 
this, and at other times sailing was more 
important. Then there were those rare 
moments when sailing was bis highest priority 
Below sailing (far below) was sleep. For Hal. 
as not a duty or a necessity, but ti

. After quarters, before quarters, after 
■ class, free periods ■ Hal simply chose 
t be awake After the 2-0 experience and 
Navy Sailing indoctrination, for Hal. 
and civilian clothes became inter- 
dependent Not just ordinary civilian clothes, 
either. Only the most outdated low-rent 
Salvation Army fashions would suffice. Hal's 
counterculture trends didn't stop at clothes, 
for his fascination with reggae music knew no 
bounds. At any moment Rastafarian rhythms 
could come booming forth, with Hal's radiant 




voice crooning

Saltillo, Missouri 

Chemistry, Marine Corps 

Jan arrived in Annapolis straight from the 
bustling metropolis of Saltillo. Unable to put 
his football skills to good use. Jan was 
inducted into the cult that is Navy Crew. 
Plebe Summer was spent facing Pigley at 
PEP. and laughing with roommate Bad 
Ronald Plebe year was spent at Timmy's, at 
practice, and above all. laughing with an 
insane person from California. Youngster year. 
Jan embraced the desperately fun chemistry 
major. Most of all. Jan was rack-starved. 
Wiiether it was after supper (wake me up at 
S) or in Boats. Jan had the talent of being able 
to fall asleep anyv.'here. Instantly. The most 
enduring image is Jan. in full uniform, in the 
rack, books in band, both feet on the floor, 
snoring happily. Another is Jan 's ability to trip 
over girls like Jessica and Bernadette. Don't 
ask me how; he doesn 't seem too certain 
himself It has been a long strange trip, from 
camping in the Keys, to the Ring Dance, to 
"Liquid Sky. " to desperate Hobie fun. and all 
to musical accompaniment by the Sex Pistols. 
We've ever survived the Q and the Amazing 
Hal's Reggae Spectacular. Best of luck in the 
Corps, and continued success in whatever you 
end up doing. Do not salute Bill. Ever.

Richard E. Haddad 


St. Louis, Michigan 

Chemistry, Marine Air 

Rich Haddad alias Habbib The Terrible & 
MA^TCOL Haddad came to us from St. Louis, 
Michigan. (I know St. Louis is in Missouri, but 
don't tell Rich.) Plebe summer taught Rich 
how to keep from laughing at the absurd and 
brought ideas of serious pain to certain 
upperclass. Plebe year ended when Rich met 
H. Chop and Stu. (That was around October.) 
With Rich s selection of Chemistry as a major, 
thoughts of Tilling goat court with pink smoke 
emerged. Youngster year came and brought 
with it a tirade of complications. Rugby 
replaced football. Friday night jogs to the 
Seven River Inn supplemented the third wing 
bar, and LCDR Kehoe took a special interest 
in Haddad- So Rich drove in the yard a few 
too many times. But we all know that he 
shouldn't have stopped the car that fateful 
night in College Park when Petro got him 
arrested (oops). Junior year came, and Rich 
left to become llth company's special envoy 
to 23rd company. (Thanks Mikey) A great 
year in rugby, the finals in Brigade Boxing, 
and an unexplainable talent for always having 
a pretty lady beside him. (I sure as hell can't 
explain it. i Senior year was a relief after the 
marching in Camp Pendleton that summer. 
Along came Julie. Las Vegas, and the Marines. 
What else does a wan need to be happy? Plus. 
Rich possesses the proper fighter pilot 
mentality. Who else (besides myself) goes as 
fast as be can the first time he rides a 
snowmobile? Rich is fmishlng up here with 
great grades, great friends, and great 
memories. Good luck Rich and look out 
Marines 'cause ail Hell's about to break loose.

When they kick at your front door 
How you gonna come? 
With your hands on your bead 
Or on the trigger of your gun? 

When the law break in 
How you gorma go? 
Shot down on the pavement 
Or waiting in Death Row? 

You can crush us 

You can bruise us 

But you'll have to answer to 

Oh - the guns of Brixton. 

The money feels good 
And your life you like it well 
But surely your time will come 
As in heaven, as in hell. 

You can see he feels like Ivan 
Born under the Brixton sun 
His game is called survivan 
At the end the harder they come. 

You know it means no money 
They caught him with a gun 
No need for the Black Maria 
Goodbye to the Brixton sun! 

You can crush us 
You can bruise ua 
Yes, even shoot us 
But Oh • the guns of Brixton.

Jimbo came to the un-coUege from the 
scenic mountains of Berlin, New Hampshire. 
Here at the Academy he excelled in being 
mellow and. of course, sleeping. If he was not 
in class or doing mandatory workouts he was 
perfecting the art of "rack". Jimbo always 
managed to do well in academics even though 
he didn't study much. He learned early that 
"gouge" weighed more then knowledge, and 
"gouge" be had ■ enough to fill the room. 

Jimbo'a favorite pastime was playing video 
games. He could not resist the temptation of 
walking past a video game without playing it. 
The dragon was never a match for Jimbo. He 
also enjoyed hstening to music when he wasn 't 
watching a James Bond movie. His love of 007 
flicks earned him a temporary nickname of 
"JAWS" when he came back first class year 
with his mouth wired shut, due to some dental

Oceanography, Navy Air 

This Yoda-looking Montanan was so 
backwards when he came to the uncoUege, 
that he didn 't know there was a plebe summer 
to go through! 

During plebe summer, the inevitable took 
place - Jake was fried. His punishment was 
one hour of marching. A night to remember, 
Jake ended up marching a total of four hours 
that night, with the first hour double -timing^ 

Plebe year went by faster than we all had 
anticipated, and being an upperclass was a 
reality. Jake deided early in his VSNA career 
that he would be a dual major - oceanography 
and sleepology! Oceanography was such a 
"bagger's" major to begin with, Jake felt be 
could fit the extra major in with no problem. 
In fact. Jake studied so persistently towards 
his sleepology degree, he has already began bis 
master's degree before leaving the Academy! 

Although low on the totem pole of class 
rank, Jake's ultimate wish came true ■ NAVY

be will be a fine naval officer. Good luck in 
all you do, and strive for nothing leas than the

Pat rocked into the NavaJ Academy from 
Maitland, Fla. with visions of rowing, rock and 
roll, and engineering. His career in rowing was 
illustrious though unfortunately short. ClI- 
culus and Chemistry spelled the end of any 
engineering aspirations. However, Pat found a 
home in the bistvry dept. and used his free 
lime tu expand his record collection and his 
roommate's minds. The remainder of his time 
was spent digging for Miss Right in the depths 
of Dahlgren Hall. He struck paydirt m the 
form of a short southern girl who was 
incredibly gracious and approving of Pat's 
gentlemanly ways. No one could even guess 
then what a gold mine he'd actually found. Pat 
was all for it when Mr YOUNG came to town. 
Yes, NEIL was great. Too bad he didn't hear 
Andy. Pat then tried to sail his way through 
rirst-class cruise but lost his lunch on the way. 
He looked forward to being a nuke but the 
glow bovs put him on hold This was the year 
he felt' the mfluence of a NAD. He was 
introduced to Riverside, Weems, Creek, 
Reggae, and 4-1 Whether it was ELVISCOS-

way were great road trips to Key West, 
Orlando, and others that Jan, Pat's moderat-

Drew decided to go out for 150ff football 
during his junior year. He surprised us all by 
getting All-League honors two years in a row. 
He wasn 't too pleased about the starvation 
diet though. Drew never let school cramp his

a reputation for sweating and "Newton 
blisters" during one of the hottest Plebe 
Summers ever 

Not content to remain in "Mama B" Bob 
joined the Antiphonal Choir. Virginia Beach. 
Atlantic City, and Hood College made Plebe 
Year more enjoyable. A port cruise in Italy 
made it worthwhile. 

Youngster Year brought a navy good deal, 
the Pep Band. No march-ons, funny hats and 
trips from Boston to the Liberty Bowl 
improved life. Choir trips to New York. New 
Orleans, and Hood College did too. 

Second Class Year brought more travel. 
Protramid meant Boston-New Orleans. Fall 
meant Atr Force (via Pep Band). Spring break 
meant New Mexico land being snowed in in 
Denver and sunburned in El Pasoi. NAFAC 
'83 Staff provided other experiences t^o. 

First Class Year brought a twenty-six day 
tour of West Germany, a five week SSN cruise 
in San Diego and the Rose Bowl. It also meant 
leading the Antiphonal Choir, as its President, 
to New York. Williamsburg, and Hood College 
and writing the program for NAFAC '84 as 
Program Chairman. It also meant an East

G. Q. claimed that his home town was in

Gary got off to a good start Plebe summer by 
taking a leisurely stroll thru 1st class alley only 
to get a personal visit from Joe Arango

know Gary as a man on the go and ready for 
action. Good Luck, Gar\: 


Samuel M. Bidder II 

Slam, Ryder 

Eaton, Ohio 

Aerospace Engineering, Marine 


Sam came from the sprawling metropolis of 
Eaton, Ohio, home of the infamous Eaton 
New8. He came here to be a football player, 
but soon found out that he wasn't one of the 
coaches' boys. He took some good advice and 
joined the track team where he lettered 
throwing the 4.4 pound fnsbee. He has always 
wanted to go to space (at times others think 
that he won't need a rocket) and figures that 
Marine Corps aviation is his best ticket there. 
He IS an avid anti-Nuker. mostly due to the 
great examples set before us. He's had some 
good times - eating < 
ice cream in D C. Civies 
as youngsters. And the. 
country road trip and Rush Street. The girls 
have been there, but he always seemed to find 
the ones that wanted meaningful relation- 
ships, not just fun. Sam has always given his 
all to his endeavors, a fact which will ensure 
his success in whatever he does. Take it easy 
big guy, and remember, "This place s -s!" 

in Philly. and 

felt better than

wanted to play, when all the time this devious

vou most rightfully deserve - the best.
